Park & Ride


The Run for the Zoo course runs through the neighborhood streets surrounding the start and finish lines, which means parking near the event is quite tricky. Please help us be good community members and respectful of our neighbors and do not block the streets, driveways or use unapproved parking areas. Remember that parking ordinances are enforced.

Shuttles will pick up participants on Marquette Ave. in front of City Hall and drop them off at Coronado Elementary (4th St. SW and Iron Ave.) for a quick “warm up” walk to the start line on 8th St. and Atlantic. Return service to Civic Plaza is located back at Coronado Elementary.

When utilizing Park & Ride, please allow yourself at least one hour of ride time before your event starts!
