The GOTR-DC 5K Event will NOT be an officially timed race with chips. Rather, we will have a clock at the finish line to give runners an estimate of their race time.

General Parking:

Free parking will be available in American University’s Nebraska Avenue Commuter Lot located at the intersection of New Mexico and Nebraska Avenues, NW.

Metro and Shuttle:

Free BLUE BUS ROUTE AU shuttles will be operating between campus and the Tenleytown Metro Station from 8:00 a.m. throughout the day approximately every 15 minutes. Shuttles will pick up/drop off outside the Tenleytown Metro Station at the intersection of Albermarle and 40th Streets, NW and drop off runners on campus in front of the Ward Building where there will be a volunteer with campus/race maps that can direct you to the start line at the AU Friedheim Quadrangle.

Packet Pick-up:

Packet pick-up for coaches and GOTR participants only will be held from 600 – 8:00 p.m. on Friday, June 3rd at the Logan Circle Pacers Running Store at 1427 P St., NW. All other registrants, both day-of and pre-registered, can pick up their packets the day of the race, June 5th starting at 8:00 a.m. at the registration table at the AU Friedheim Quadrangle.

Start Line:

Race day volunteers with maps will direct all runners from the shuttle drop-off off point and parking lot to the start line at the AU Friedheim Quadrangle. All GOTR-DC teams will have meeting places near the start line on the AU Friedheim Quadrangle for their girls – just look for your team name and coaches.


GOTR-DC will be unable to process any refunds for race registration.


No dogs will be allowed on the racecourse in the interest of the safety of our young runners.

Jogging Strollers:

Strollers are allowed and welcomed on the racecourse.
