1. What is included in the Travel Information?
The Travel Information page gives the participant information about the starting and ending locations for the event, directions to those locations and instructions for how to make hotel reservations (including shuttle service) before, during and after the event.

2. When will I receive the Travel Information?
You can find the Travel Information webpage in your Participant Center, under the Prepare menu on the left-hand side. Information about ceremony locations and a hotel reservation link will be posted in April. Additional details about ceremony times, driving directions and parking will be added to that webpage approximately 6-8 weeks prior to the Susan G. Komen 3-Day®.

3. How long do I have to make my travel arrangements?
Due to limited availability, please make your travel arrangements as soon as possible. All hotel room packages must be booked 2 weeks prior to the Monday before the Komen 3-Day, and are available on a first come, first served basis. Hotel rooms and the associated promotional rate are subject to availability of the room block.

4. What is a Host Hotel?
A hotel where we’ve negotiated room blocks for 3-Day® participants the nights before, during and immediately after the event. Host hotel rooms and shuttle service are sold by the hotel as a package.

5. How do I book a room?
Click the link on your 3-Day event’s Travel Info page to go to the 3-Day hotel reservation website. This site is maintained by the 3-Day’s travel agent, and all reservations must be made through this site in order to get the 3-Day package rate with shuttle service.

6. I am a crew member. Is there a specific hotel that I need to stay in?
Yes. Not all Thursday night hotels will have early morning shuttle services for crew members. There will be host hotel/s designated for crew members, which will include a crew shuttle, so please make a note of it on the hotel reservation website. Crew members may not stay in a hotel on Friday or Saturday night, as they are required to stay in camp.

7. Where are the Host Hotels located?
For details and reservations, visit your 3-Day event’s Travel Info page and click the link in the hotel section to go to the 3-Day hotel reservation website. This site is maintained by the 3-Day’s travel agent, and all reservations must be made through this site in order to get the 3-Day package rate with shuttle service.

8. How do I get to my Host Hotel?
Participants are responsible for their own transportation to the Host Hotel on Thursday.

9. What are my shuttle options?
Friday Shuttle - If you book a room for Thursday night through the 3-Day hotel reservation website, you will receive free shuttle transportation for all hotel room occupants (4 participants per room maximum) from the hotel to the Opening Ceremony on Friday morning. You will not receive shuttle service if your room is booked separately from the 3-Day hotel reservation website. Shuttle buses cannot accommodate bicycles.

Camp Shuttle - Friday and Saturday night hotel reservations booked through the 3-Day hotel reservation website include shuttle transportation for all hotel room occupants (4 participants per room maximum) to and from camp. Camp/Hotel transportation shuttles are expected to run approximately every 30 minutes between camp and the hotel between 2:00 p.m. - 8:45 p.m. on Friday and Saturday afternoon. You will receive a pre-arrival letter with detailed shuttle times, and the shuttle times will be posted at the host hotels. Please allow for extra time during peak camp operational hours from 4:00 p.m. - 8:45 p.m. Plan to arrive at the bus loading area 15 minutes prior to departure during these hours. Hotel transportation shuttles will be operating on a continuous loop between the hotel and camp on Saturday and Sunday mornings (opening time will vary by location) ending 60 minutes prior to camp closure time each morning. For example: If camp closes at 8:00 a.m. and all participants need to be on the route by this time, the last bus will depart the host hotel at 7:00 a.m. You will not receive shuttle service if your room is booked separately from the 3-Day hotel reservation website. Shuttle buses cannot accommodate bicycles.

Sunday Shuttle - Sunday night hotel reservations booked through the 3-Day hotel reservation website include shuttle transportation for all hotel room occupants (4 participants per room maximum) from the Closing Ceremony to the hotel. Shuttle departs 30 minutes after completion of the Closing Ceremony.  Everyone taking a Sunday shuttle will need to pick up a shuttle pass from the Sunday Shuttle Tent at camp on Friday night, 2:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m., even if your shuttle service cost is part of your host hotel reservation. Shuttle buses cannot accommodate bicycles.

All other participants needing a return shuttle back to a host hotel may pick-up a shuttle pass and sticker for $20/person from the Sunday Shuttle Tent at camp, on Friday, 2:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. This shuttle will only go to Thursday night host hotels and is open to any participant who purchases a Sunday return shuttle sticker at camp on Friday night. You do not need to be a hotel guest. You can only purchase these shuttle passes on Friday night in camp; they will not be available for purchase on Saturday night.

Whether you utilize the shuttle service included in the hotel package is your decision, but all rooms automatically come with the shuttle transportation. There is not a reduced rate for the hotel room if you choose not to use the shuttle.

12. I am not staying at a host hotel, but at another hotel nearby can I still use the shuttle?
No. The host hotel package room rates are inclusive of your hotel sleeping room and shuttle transportation to the various 3-Day sites. Shuttle transportation to the various 3-Day sites is not available through the host hotel for those who do not book through the 3-Day hotel reservation website. We recommend that you check with your chosen hotel to determine your transportation options.

13. How will they be identifying camp host hotel shuttle users?
A registered hotel rooming list provided by the hotel will specify all persons and roommates booked under the package room rate at the host hotel. No ticket or pass is required.

14. Is long-term parking available during the 3-Day?
There will not be an official 3-Day long-term parking lot. This option was discontinued in 2017 due to lack of interest. Specific details about parking options for each 3-Day will be provided on the Travel Information page approximately 6-8 weeks before the event.
