Parking & Directions

Suggested Parking for the 2023 41st Annual Strategic Staffing Solutions Turkey Trot


Congestion will be heavy throughout the downtown area on Thanksgiving morning due to the race, America’s Thanksgiving Parade® presented by Gardner-White, and the Detroit Lions Football Game.  It is recommended that you be in your parking place by 6:15 am, whichever race you attend.  Our S3 Turkey Trot Race Central in Huntington Place opens at 6:00am.  The Turkey Trot cannot be held responsible if you miss the start due to traffic delays.

There are locations we suggest that have access to and from the Start Area on Griswold and the Finish at Huntington Place.

HUNTINGTON PLACE ROOF DECK: 625 West Congress, Detroit 48226. (While there is a designated departure route to avoid cutting the course, traffic may be delayed due to runner traffic on Fort and Jefferson.)
