Runners will proceed east on Main on the inbound two lanes making a 180 degree turn around the median at Bassett Avenue. Runners return on the outbound lanes of East Main Street until making a right on Martin Luther King and then a left on Short Street to the finish line.
There is one hydration station setup along East Main Street that runners will pass by twice. The elevation change for the course is 154 feet. All runners will be chip timed but the Overall Top 3 M/F awards will be based on a "head to head" gun time.
