Essentials

Be prepared for rain and maybe thunderstorms Friday night and Saturday. The rain brings cooler temperatures after Friday’s high could be near 90 degrees. comfortable shoes with a tread, because you may end up sitting on one of the stadium’s slick hillsides when the seats fill up for Saturday’s finals.

Park at Westroads

Meet officials are urging public use of the shuttle parking at Westroads Mall — parking on the grass on the Burke campus is being discouraged because of soft conditions. Park in the northeast lots of Westroads, at 100th and West Dodge Road, and take the free shuttle bus, which begins at 7 a.m. each day. Buy your meet tickets there ($9 for adults, $6 for students) or purchase them online at nsaahome.ticketleap.com.

If you must drive to Burke

From the west on the West Dodge Expressway, stay in the right-hand lanes to exit onto West Dodge Road for the move to 120th Street. Those entering West Dodge from Interstate 680 should follow the signs for West Dodge Road. Our advice for parking: TAKE THE SHUTTLE.

Handicapped parking

Available on the east side of the stadium with a valid permit.

At the stadium

Buy a program ($4). The finish line is in front of the west grandstand on the south end, but those seats fill first. The east grandstand offers a good view of the long jump and boys pole vault pits.

Following along

It’s hard to miss — the huge video board on the north rim of the stadium. Track events will be shown live, and times will appear on the board soon after runners cross the finish.
