Course Information
Course Map

The route for the GOTR Spring 5K will be headquartered at Frederick County’s beautiful Middletown Community Park, at pavilion #3.
Our GOTR Girls and their running buddies will be treated to a course with three separately distinctive sections. First, they’ll run a loop cross-country style in the grass around the outer perimeter of the park and past Middletown Community Park’s lake and frisbee golf course. Transitioning from grass to pavement, they’ll run a loop through a neighborhood to the east and then retrace their steps back into the park. Shortly after the water stop, which will be located at just under two miles into the course, our participants will begin another neighborhood tour, this time south of the park. The smiling GOTR girls (and their Running Buddies) will wend their way back toward the finish line via the neighborhood’s sidewalks, re-entering the park again just prior to crossing the finish line where friends and family will be gleefully cheering for all!

GOTR Spring 5K parking entrance point. Enter Coblentz Rd., from 40A ONLY, regardless of which direction you are coming from (unless you live in the development immediately east of the park)! View to see Ingress Route!
