Course Map

The Every Step Counts Autism Walk & 5K Run takes place at Centennial Park in Ellicott City, MD. The 5K run course (in blue) features a paved foot trail that meanders around the lake, with a few rolling hills, straight-aways, and one or two steep climbs. The 4K walk course (in yellow) shares much of the race route. Along the route, participants will have the opportunity to take in the scenery as well as spot wildlife and water birds. Please Note: Race route guides will NOT be stationed at intersections along the event route. There will NOT be a water stop. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Indoor restroom facilities and drinking fountains are located near the event start/finish and about 3.5K into the clockwise event route.
