Parking will be available at Bier Distillery and Dr. Johns. Dr. Johns is a stone throw away from Bier Distillery, across West River Drive. There will be a shuttle available between Bier Distillery and Dr. Johns before and after the event. The start/finish area is in the Dr. Johns parking lot, adjacent to the White Pine Trail. It is not safe to cross West River Drive on foot. Please use the provided transportation.
The 5K course will be marked appropriately with mile signs. From the start/finish location, participants will make a right on the White Pine Trail and run for about 1/2 mile to the turn around. 1 milers go to the turn around and then back to the finish. The 5K participants will then head back to where they came from and eventually run over a bridge that crosses West River Drive. Immediately after the bridge, runners will make a right on a sidewalk. They will follow that sidewalk along West River Drive, along Rogue River Drive and connect back onto the White Pine Trail. The course is all on trails and sidewalks, no roads. There will be a water aid station off the sidewalk just after mile 2. Once back on the trail, it will be a straight shot back to the finish.
The male and female overall winners will get a Bier Distillery Gift Certificate plus a bottle of their choice or shirt. Each top age group winner will get their choice of a Bier Distillery whiskey glass or beer glass. Prizes can be picked up inside Bier Distillery whenever you make it. Results will be posted inside. Also, every registrant that turns in a complimentary Mint Julep Sweet Tea cocktail voucher (craft soda available as well) will get a small commemorative glass!
