Course Description

The Spring Fling course starts on Bellamy Street, just outside of the Cabot High School Field House. The route heads south for 1/4 mile before turning left onto Main St. The race moves into a tree-lined residential area, and turns south onto Honeysuckle Ln. The runners will curve along this road, merging onto Linda Lane and continuing south to reach the 1st mile marker. Just after beginning the 2nd mile, the course turns runners south onto G street for a small loop before returning to Linda Lane to head back to the north. Once the runners have returned to Linda Lane they will pass the 2nd mile marker. The third mile returns the runners to Honeysuckle, Main St and then north on Bellamy to pass the starting line. The route then turns into the Field House Parking Lot and turning down the ramp to enter the Stadium. The course turns left on the track where runners will hit the 3 mile marker just before the back turn leaving runners just the turn and a short straightaway until the finish line.

PLEASE NOTE: Use restrooms at the bottom of the track (right inside the stadium) before walking up Bellamy to the starting line. There are limited bathrooms at the top of the hill.
