Offsite Registration & Location Info

Note: We ID every guest.

No one under the age of 21 is permitted at University Row, without exception. Please have your ID and your ticket with you upon arrival at your registration location.

Tent Bus Registration – DC

The DC Hub pickup bar is The Madhatter, located at 1319 Connecticut Avenue, NW. Registration starts at 7:30 am and ends at 9:30am. Don’t be late, or you may be left behind!

The DC Spoke pickup location is at Union Pub, located at 201 Massachusetts Avenue, NE. Registration starts at 8:00am, and ends at 9:30am. Late arrivals will be walking to the Row!

Tent Bus Registration – Virginia

Our primary University Row pickup location (or Virginia Hub pickup point) is at A-Town in Ballston. Registration is located in front of the restaurant, starting at 7:30am and ending at 10:00am. Don’t be late, or you may be left behind!

    • Bus Boarding by Zones
      • To help limit the craziness and discourage long lines at bus loading, we will continue with our system of Loading Zones this year. When you register at A-Town, you will be assigned a loading zone. This zone ticket will allow you to board a bus any time from that zone number on till the end of boarding, so if your friends come later and you want to ride with them, just wait till their zone comes up. If you want to ride an early bus, please come to A-Town early!
    • Parking
      • Parking is available at the Ballston Mall Parking Garage, for a reasonable fee, as well as at parking lots and street parking nearby. Be sure to pay the correct fee for any long-term street parking, so that you can park all day without issues.

Our Virginia Spoke pickup location is at Crystal City Sports Pub, located at 529 23rd Street South in Arlington. There is ample free parking available nearby (be sure to read the signs to ensure it is free on Saturday), and drink and food specials at this location are the best of all our pickup points!  Registration starts at 8:00am, and ends at 9:30am. Late arrivals will be walking to the Row!

Arrival at the Proper Ticketed Registration Location Required

Also, be sure to check your ticket to make sure you arrive at the correct registration location.  A DC ticketholder will not be accepted at Ballston and vice versa. Additionally, there are only 2 buses leaving the DC pilot location, so there is absolutely no room for exceptions in DC given that DC tickets are sold out.  If you arrive in DC with a Ballston ticket, we will have to direct you to the registration location (ie: we see an Uber ride in your immediate future).


Metro will be operating on its weekend schedule and rebuilding tracks on race day, so please plan accordingly. We recommend checking their trip planner prior to and early on race day.



Also, we have a special deal with Uber, if you want to get to Rock Bottom or Madhatter in style.  New riders can use our promo code: UROW15.
