COURSE MAPS:
FOR ALL RUNNERS, KEEP IN MIND THAT WE HAVE VOLUNTEERS, POLICE AND FIRE TO KEEP YOU SAFE. BUT THERE ARE SECTIONS WHERE YOU WILL BE RUNNING ON ROADS WITH TRAFFIC, AND ROADS ARE NOT CLOSED. PLEASE TRY TO KEEP AGAINST TRAFFIC AND EXERT CAUTION. REMEMBER, IF THERE IS A CAR BEING A JERK, DON'T PLAY CHICKEN- LET THE CAR WIN (BUT TELL US IF YOU CAN GET A LICENSE # OR IDENTIFYING INFO- POTTEVILLE CITY AND POLICE TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY).

10 k route- course time limit is 3.5 hours - U-Turn is in Sunset Hills neighborhood.  We have signs, more signs, a table and volunteers who will remind you.  If you hit Gresham or Fox Park, you've gone too far and just upgraded to the half marathon! Keep it going!

This route starts and ends the long way around the lake. You will then go up Lansing Road, turn into Main/Nelson, do a small lolliopop, continue onto Nelson/Main. At the intesersection of Main/Nelson where there are stop signs, you will GO STRAIGHT thru, into downtown, past City Hall, it curves and right before Hartel you will turn left onto a bike/running path that is parallel to Hartel bridge, turn left where the Hartel bridge ends into the new part of Sunset Hills (beautiful empty lots and nice newly paved roads), then hit the neighborhood where houses are. A couple of blocks in past that, you will see volunteers, a table and signs for 10k UTURN. Otherwise, you are now a half marathoner. U-turn, go back up Sunset Hills, turn right onto the Hartel birdge bike path, turn right back onto Main/Nelson back into downtown, go past city hall. At Main/Nelson stop sign intesection at Vermontville, turn right. You are heading back to the bike path (parallel to the train tracks) that will bring you into the park. Finish the long way around the lake. 10k has 3 water stations.
