Run Course Details and MapThe first 1.3 miles will be on the road with very few turns. You will start on a nice flat stretch and then climb out of the parkway on a gradual incline until after the first mile. After your initial climb, your hard work will pay off and the balance of the run will be gently rolling hills and flat to the finish. The entire course will be on paved or hard packed surfaces.  If you start the race in the group corresponding to your race pace, your run will be much more enjoyable. If you plan on running some, but not all of the race, register for the 5K run instead of the Competative Walk.

See the course map, highlighted in GREEN arrows for the 5K run course.
