Like last year, participants will begin in front of the main building near the gazebo, follow the arrows around the left side of the building, and go around the apartments and gymnasium buildings . 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 on this compacted gravel road until they reach the marked 5K turnaround point and run the trail in reverse - finishing at the beginning of the course. 

10k Course Map

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 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.
