Official ferry times: 7:55, 8:55, & 9:35 a.m. ONLY

Lost Packet Pickup

7:00 a.m. to 9:15 a.m

Want to head straight to the ferry? Be sure to register online so your packet can be mailed. Please adhere to the three official Chilly Hilly ferry times. All other ferries will require purchase of a ferry ticket.


Be aware that parking options may have changed from previous years due to waterfront developments.  Please consider carpooling, transit or riding your bike to the start line if possible. In 2020 and 2021, several protected bike lanes were completed from Belltown, through downtown, and into the International District, making bike riding between parking and the docks more convenient. See the map here.

Check out the Downtown Seattle Parking map for pricing and hours. Street parking might be available, but please carefully check all parking and traffic signs.
