Parking in Pismo Beach

There is no parking at Dinosaur Caves Park. We ask that all half marathon runners park in San Luis Obispo and utilize the free shuttles if possible.

There will be additional parking available at the Pismo Beach City Hall parking lot, located on Mattie Road between City Hall and F. McLintocks restaurant. To get to this parking area from San Luis Obispo, take Highway 101 South to the Shell Beach Road exit, turn left to go under the freeway, then turn right on Mattie Road. The parking area will be on the left. We will provide a shuttle service, Cuesta College marked vans, between this parking lot and the finish area at Dinosaur Caves Park starting at 6:00 a.m and ending at 11:30 a.m.
