GOTR Color Zones/School Meeting Locations: 

Each school is assigned to a specific color zone which are designated by large colored feather flags. The coaches will inform the girls as to their color zone several weeks before the race. Girls and their running buddies will meet at the color zones in the race village prior to race start. 

Restroom facilities, water, and medical:

For your convenience, portable toilets will be located in the start/finish area. There will be one water stop on the course, about halfway through, and there will also be water at the finish line. There will be medical assistance available in the start/finish area as well.


There is plenty of free parking in the zoo's main parking area. Volunteers will be stationed throughout the park to direct you to the parking lot. Please DO NOT park on the street as that creates huge delays for everyone both arriving and departing the park, as well as present a safety hazard for emergency vehicles. Please use the following address for the parking lot:

1 Safari Place, Baltimore, MD 21217
