San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 24, 2014
GottaPark, an online marketplace for parking reservations, today announced its new partnership with the Transamerica ® Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon San Francisco. With this new partnership, the Half Marathon can offer visitors to its website the ease and convenience of online parking reservations for race day, April 6. With thousands of runners and spectators expected to descend upon downtown San Francisco on the morning of the race, parking will surely be at a premium. By integrating GottaPark’s tools onto its website, the Transamerica Rock ‘n’ Roll San Francisco team hopes to make parking a little easier for these visitors.
This will be the fourth time in the last 12 months that GottaPark has teamed up with a marathon. The company worked with the San Francisco Marathon in June, the Nike Women’s Marathon in October, and the Berkeley Half Marathon in November. Each time, the company has helped progressively larger groups of drivers to find a parking space ahead of time.
“The goal is to make people’s race day less stressful,” said Luke Jones, Director of Business Development for GottaPark. “Nobody wants to arrive ready to run, only to have to scramble around to find parking.”
Transamerica Rock ‘n’ Roll San Francisco takes place on April 6th. The route takes runners from Ocean Beach to Civic Center Plaza, featuring a highlight trip out and back across the Golden Gate Bridge. Because of the point-to-point nature of the course, participants driving to the race are encouraged to park near Civic Center and take a free shuttle to the start line. After the race, they will be back where they started. To view the course map, click here.
“We are excited to be working with GottaPark to provide online parking reservations to participants,” said Kevin LaRue, Senior Event Coordinator for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series. “With so many runners coming to one location at the same time, it is important to give participants the peace of mind of having a reserved parking space prior to race morning.”
GottaPark works with garages across North America to offer customers online parking reservations. In downtown San Francisco, GottaPark’s partner garages have thousands of spaces available for reservation, allowing drivers coming for marathons, events, or ordinary downtown activities to reserve a spot. In addition to its downtown spaces in major cities, GottaPark offers event parking for professional sporting events like Major League Baseball games, as well as parking near 61 major airports in the US.
The second annual Transamerica Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon San Francisco takes place on Sunday, April 6, 2014. Event weekend kicks off on Friday, April 4 with a two-day Health & Fitness Expo at the Moscone Center where participants pick up their race number and packet. The expo will feature more than one hundred running and fitness retailers, exhibits and interactive clinics. For more information, please visit RunRocknRoll.com or follow @RunRocknRoll on Twitter.
