Start is in front of the doors to the PACE CENTER- (Mile-1 is blue on map) Heading EAST on sidewalk to turn right to trail, then left heading east on trail/path. You will cross the road at Rowly Downs (Stonehenge Way) – Crossing helpers. Continue past the Church staying on the RIGHT SIDE of the trail. The trail bends down to the right and takes you under the road at Willow Park. Trees along your right as you see the park ahead. You have reached the 1 mile mark!!
The second mile ((Mile-2 is red on map) takes you towards the park at Riva Ridge. Stay on the path, stay to the right and go up to the street (Riva Ridge Drive) You will NOT cross the street, TURN LEFT, staying on the sidewalk (watch you steps, narrow sidewalk here). You will cross the entrance of the parking lot of the park. After you cross, stay on the sidewalk (tight left turn). Stay on the sidewalk which takes you in front of the parking lot and the playground area of the park. As you head back to the trail, follow the markings to turn back WEST on your way towards the Pace Center again. This part of the course is downhill!! As you head back downhill past the Church on your right, you will reach the 2 mile mark at the baseball field on your right. You are now headed to the Stonehedge street crossing for the final mile of the race. You continue to stay middle to right side of the path
Mile 3 - (Mile-3 is black on map) you will stay on the path and go straight past the first entrance to the trail from the start of the race. NOW….you are directed to move to the LEFT SIDE OF THE PATH. This will allow for the runners behind you and give you a clear run up for the finish. As you continue to head west, you will see Pine drive, but you will reach our U TURN area next to the apartments. You will be on the left, slow down to make your turn and head east back to under the street. As you travel under the street you will make a left turn up the hill back up the the sidewalk on Pine Drive. Follow the sidewalk and run up in front of the Pace Center to your original start line! You have done it!
Make sure your bibs are on in the front of your shirt. You will cross over the finish line. You time is based off your start time. Continue down the sidewalk and grab some snacks and visit the vendors!
