Travel Information

Where to Stay

We have setup special room blocks at several hotels in Palestine listed below. The room block will not only lock in a better rate, but also help the city keep track of how many people stayed in hotels. When calling any of our partner hotels below, please mention you are with the event and would like to be in the room block. You can also book rooms as an add-on through our registration page.

Book this one through our registration page as an add-on to your entry. 

Limited to 25 rooms total, 10 of which are already reserved as of 08/05/21.

Places to Eat

Palestine has a great selection of places to eat in and around the event site. These are just a couple of the places we'd recommend, but of course you are welcome to explore the area on your own!

Located at the start/finish area, Pint & Barrel is a big supporter of the event. Packet pickup will be there Friday so it would be a good place to grab a bite.
