The USATF certified 5K course runs through Calvin's scenic, relatively flat college campus. The 5K race will begin with the handcycle racers starting just before the runners, and walkers starting just behind the runners. Strollers are welcome, but must stay at the back of the race. Bicycles, rollerblades, skateboards and animals are not allowed on the course. Strollers may enter the Hoogenboom Gym using the handcycle entrance in Lot 6. All participants must be registered and have a race number to participate.
