All participants need to park in the Anthony Wayne Trail parking lot and enter the Zoo through the gates at the main entrance. Participants will then proceed to The Toledo Zoo’s Main Plaza prior to race time. Click here for maps and detailed driving directions to the Zoo.
A majority of the 5K course is plotted on residential streets surrounding the Toledo Zoo. The course for the Kids’ 1K Fun Run is set up only inside of Zoo grounds. Due to construction at the Aquarium, the courses have been re-designed and the 5K course was re-certified by USTAF. 5K participants shoudl note that there will be a sharp turn entering and exiting the elephant viewing overlook in Tembo Trail.
