Venue Information

Getting Around on Base



Driving and Parking

All participants are requested to use the North Gate entrance (Exit 156 off Interstate 25) for entry. Security personnel at the North Gate will validate access. Remain on North Gate Drive for about 1.5 miles. Make a left onto Parade Loop. In about half a mile, turn right on Field House drive and the MORSS parking lot will be on your right. There will be directional signs. Board a MORS shuttle which will take you to Fairchild Hall. The shuttle will be on a 15 minute loop, so there may be some waiting time. If you choose to walk, the parking lot to Fairchild Hall takes about 15 minutes on foot. Please be advised that you will be at 7,000 feet so the walk will be a bit more challenging than usual. Also note that you will need to be escorted by a Cadet through the gate, as Fairchild Hall is inside the Cadet Area.

Note:  Participants will be required to present either their U. S. Government issued ID (U.S. Citizens) or Passport (Foreign Nationals) to Security personnel at the North Gate.
