5K Race parking is in the Overlook III and Overlook I deck.  The Overlook buildings have a Paces Ferry address, but you must turn off of Paces Ferry on to Overlook Parkway to get to the building.  You must enter parking decks from Paces Ferry side.  Parking is no problem since Rotary volunteers will direct you once you get close.  The Overlook III parking deck exit is complicated.  The trick is to take the elevator or stairs to level 5.  From these parking decks go to the top of the hill for registration and the start.
