5k Course Map

5k Course Map: Combination pavement and compact gravel. 

Like last year, participants will begin on the field behind the school near the gazebo, follow the woodline all the way around the ballfield, up the hill towards the school and down the compacted gravel drive behind the apartment buildings on campus. The trail will lead participants to Hudlow Road, where they will turn right and follow Hudlow until they reach Box Creek Road on the left. Runners will turn around approx. 200 yards before reaching the railroad tracks and run the trail in reverse - finishing at the beginning of the course.

Runners will run the full length of Box Creek Road, turning around just past the bridge near Hwy. 221. Participants will then run the trail in reverse - finishing at the beginning of the course.
