SPECTATORS

We welcome spectators to cheer on their family and friends at the Space Force T-Minus 10-Miler Finish Line Festival! All spectators must have a valid parking pass in order to enter onto Cape Canaveral Space Force Station through Deas Gate. Please follow the instructions below:

Spectators must obtain a valid parking pass at the packet pick-up on Friday, December 9. If you do not have a valid parking pass on race day, you will not be authorized access to the event on Cape Canaveral Space Force Station. Spectators may ride in a vehicle with a participant who has already been issued a valid parking pass at packet pick-up. (Each vehicle entering Deas Gate must have one valid parking pass in order to gain access.)

Parking is available free of charge on the Skid Strip which can be accessed via Deas Gate (see map below and more information on the parking/directions page). Deas Gate will be open for spectators with valid Space Force T-Minus 10-Miler parking passes beginning at 4:30 a.m. until 9:30 a.m.. Please note the last Participant Shuttle to the start line is at 6:45 a.m. If a participant misses the last shuttle to the start line there will be no alternative way to get to the start line and they will not be able to participate in the event.

Spectators must pass through a security checkpoint after parking. Spectator Shuttles will be available to take spectators from the parking area to the finish line. Shuttles will also be available to take both spectators and participants from the finish line back to the parking area.

The Finish Line Festival offers food trucks (cash and credit card accepted), special exhibitors, and event sponsors available to visit. The Cape Canaveral Lighthouse Museum is open and offers free admission. We encourage you to visit while awaiting your family member or friend to cross the finish line. You may track your family member or friend here (mobile app link launching soon!).  Spectators may also enjoy the historical lighthouse near the finish line. Please note the significant archeological resource site on the map below and be sure to use existing sidewalks in this area.
