Event Details




The Monster Truck Jam, beginning at 11am, at Mercedes-Benz Stadium will affect traffic before and after Hunger Walk Run.

The following road closures will impact your ability to access the parking lots north and east of 755 Hank Aaron Drive: Green, Blue, Gold and Orange lots.

  • Closing at 1:30pm- 3:30pm Hank Aaron Drive / Capitol Avenue between Fulton Street and Bill Lucas Drive (south side of Georgia State Stadium)
  • Closing at 12:00pm-4:00pm Ralph David Abernathy Jr. Blvd/Georgia Ave, S.E (between Pollard Boulevard and Hank Aaron Drive / Capitol Avenue ), for the starting/finish line of the race.

The Green Lot and a portion of the Gold Lot are unavailable this year.

>> We suggest that all participants plan to arrive at 755 Hank Aaron Drive before 1:30pm for FREE PARKING and to allow time for parking to get to the event (the Walk/Run starts at 2:00pm). We anticipate the available Blue, Orange and limited spaces in the Gold lots within the immediate vicinity of 755 Hank Aaron Drive will be completely full around this time. Once these lots fill, the only available parking will be on the west side of I-75/85, on Central Avenue and Pryor Street, or in the private pay parking lots available in the vicinity of 755 Hank Aaron Drive primarily south and west of the stadium.

Parking is free at all available lots until 2pm or until full. After 2pm the following fees apply, $10 per car and $25 per truck / van. (View Parking Map)

Bus parking is located on Pollard Boulevard on the northbound curb, between the blue lot entrance and Ralph David Abernathy Jr. Boulevard.

Handicap parking is available with valid permit along the Pollard Blvd SW entrance.

>> Please note the Walk/Run starting line has shifted over to Ralph David Abernathy Jr. Blvd/Georgia Ave, S.E., just south of the Green Lot. The Walk/Run starts at 2:00pm. (view site map for more details)
