GETTING THERE

There are plenty of ways to get to the race. The central location makes transit, cycling or carpooling a great option. 

If you choose to drive, we ask race participants use the ZOO PARKING LOT for the event. There is a cost to park here. We suggest downloading the ParkPlus APP prior to the event and paying through the app as the ticket machines are on South side of the parking lot (and you will head north for the race)

SUSTAINABILITY

Help us keep our races green by bringing your own water bottle. (Compostable cups and on-site recycling and composting will also be provided.)
