Bunker to Bonneville 50K Run

We encourage participants to park at the Finish Line parking lot in the morning starting around 6am. There will be shuttles and car pooling from there to the race start at Whistle Punk Trailhead. The last shuttle will leave at 6:45am for the start. Parking at the finish will not only be more convenient it will eliminate parking problems at the start where there is limited parking.
