1 Mile Course Map

New this year! Our untimed 1 mile Fun Run/Walk for those who want to join in the fun but don't want to do the whole 5K distance.

1 mile participants will start soon after the 5K runners take off. They will follow Cliffview Dr, cross over Rolling Ave and continue onto Arden Rd. 
At the intersection of Arden & Turkey Point Rd., they will turn around, go back down Arden and turn left onto Rolling Ave. They will turn right on Cliffview Drive and continue back to the finish line. 

Special Offer!

The first 100 registrants will receive one of these custom tumblers, donated by our sponsor Beiler-Campbell Realtors. It's great for a refreshing cool drink after your run, or for a nice hot beverage while you read your favorite book.
