The Course: HALF MAP - 5k Map

You will enjoy miles of perfect scenery, amazing marsh and river front views, elegant homes and sneak peaks of the Landings Golf Courses. This is mostly an open course because the traffic is minimal, and you'll likely share the road with a homeowner enjoying their daily golf cart ride. The course is almost entirely paved; generally super flat. It is certified by US Track and Field and can be used as a qualifying time. You can expect green grass, flowers and cool breezes off the marsh. The average temperature has been in the mid 70s by noon. It is small next to the national races so you won't be fighting an crowds for your free parking.
