High Five Events is excited to introduce the partnership between the 2017 3M Half Marathon and SpotHero, the nation’s leading parking reservation app. The partnership will enable participants and spectators to find easy and affordable parking reservations, saving them both time and money.

“The 3M Half Marathon is one of the faster half marathon courses in the country and runners from all over travel to Austin to set a PR,” said Stacy Keese, co-owner of High Five Events. “It makes perfect sense to partner with SpotHero, a company that allows you to PR in finding a parking spot.”

Participants can download the SpotHero app and secure their parking for both race day and the Packet Pickup & Expo. With SpotHero, drivers know in advance where they are headed and how much they will pay so they don’t need to circle the block looking for parking, hoping to find a spot in time.

“SpotHero takes the hassle and stress out of the parking experience, enabling drivers to focus on the important things in life, like running a marathon or supporting friends and family,” said Kristen Cho, VP of Marketing at SpotHero.

The 3M Half Marathon boasts one of the fastest 13.1-mile courses in the country and will celebrate its 23rd year running in 2017. Runners will enjoy a point-to-point course with mostly downhill running that showcases some of Austin’s finest locations. Starting in north Austin and finishing in front of the Texas State Capitol, runners will appreciate a 306’ net elevation drop. Participants can register and book their hotel on the website.

High Five Events, one of the largest privately owned event production companies in the United States, is pleased to announce that the 3M Half Marathon will implement the services of onPeak, the leading hotel booking solution for large-scale events. Through the platform, registrants can secure the best hotel rates near the start line or the finish line.

onPeak’s forward-thinking housing services and tech solutions factored into the decision to partner with event. Customer service is a high priority of High Five Events and onPeak will make the hotel booking experience an easier process for participants and spectators who travel to Austin.
