The start line is right at the beer tent! Runners and walkers will start off down Main Street, cross over M100, and head into Potterville School to the beautiful track!! Participants will take a lap around the track before heading back out and running through the iconic tunnel. Once through the tunnel, they turn right and head up over the railroad tracks and into the beautiful Sunset Hills Subdivision on the paved path. There will be a water station set up at this spot.
Runners and walkers will follow the path over some rolling hills before turning around to head back to town past the water station and tunnel. Everyone will pass by the fun Imagination Station before hitting the path along M100 to Cherry Street. Participants will run the road for 4 blocks before turning to go by Potterville's City Hall. Turning right again, it's the home stretch for one block with the finish line right at the beer tent!
