-All races will start the Hunting Island State Park Nature Center (should pop up in your google maps).
-The 5k trail race is an out and back course with one aid station at the turn around point. Since we are using the beautiful established trail system at Hunting Island – the 5k will be a bit long ~3.3 miles. You can do it!
-The 5 mile and 10 mile races will be run on a loop course with 5 mile runners running 1 clockwise loop and 10 mile runners running 2 clockwise loops. There will be water, nuun electrolytes, and on course nutrition for the 5 mile and 10 mile runners. There will be two aid stations per loop – one at the start/finish and another ~3miles into the loop.
-The loop for the 5miler/10miler can be found here: http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/2738465455?host_canon=mapmyrun.com
