The 5K Course starts at Ivy Hawn school parking lot, and merges out onto the roads from Pleasant Street, passing a thriving part of Lake Helen, Blake Park and the Equestrian Center towards East Michigan Avenue. As you follow East Michigan Avenue around, this rode becomes N. Orange Avenue as you pass the lake (Lake Helen) on your left. When you reach Barbe St. you will have completed your FIRST MILE, go left and merge onto Tangerine Avenue towards Lakeview Drive.  You will turn left on Lakeview Drive then turn right on Connecticut Avenue.  You will go two (2) blocks and turn left on Euclid Avenue.  Following N.
