Both race events start and end at the beautiful Riverfront Amphitheater. The 10K will take you around Plym Park, through downtown Niles, and south along the scenic St. Joseph River onto Bond Street. It finishes on the trail along the river. The 5K is an abbreviated version of the 10K. Both have a hill after the first mile that’s a reminder that it’s never easy being a hero – but it’s worth the challenge.
