Getting to River Junction
If you're coming from Iowa City, River Junction is best accessed by taking Highway 218 south of town. Take the exit at Riverside/Route 22 and head East past the Riverside Casino. Please enter River Junction from the North by way of Otter Creek Rd. SE. The alternative, Sand Rd., turns to dirt just outside of town and we don't want to have to pull you out of the mud!
Parking at will begin starting at 5:30 am on race morning. Volunteers will be on hand to help direct you to a space. Please consider giving them a high five!
During the day, please try to limit your travel to/from River Junction to the North/South segment of Otter Creek Rd. between town and 22. Riders will be finishing on the segment South of town and we'd like to keep motor traffic to minimum.
There are a wealth of additional overnight accommodations in the Iowa City area. To get started, we'd recommend that you check out this list from the Iowa City/Coralville Area Convention and Visitor's Bureau.
