The campus of The University of Toledo is large and if you aren’t familiar with the campus, you may just find yourself lost or unsure of where you are headed. The races all start and finish, and run through and around campus so there are multiple road closures and parking lots that are off limits.
Where is the Glass Bowl? Where is Savage Arena? Where is the Findley Davies Kids Marathon? Most importantly, you’ll want to know where the porta-potties are before the race begins.
Take a look at the map and read the legend to find out where you can park and where you need to be. Knowledge is power when it comes to race weekend!

I highly suggest it for all runners for all races, no runner likes a surprise on race day. Plus, it’s always great to know where every aid station is because I am a drinker and can never be too hydrated when I’m running.

Race bibs are color coded based on the race you are entered to run (examples below). The bib also includes the B-Tag, your tracking […]
