Event Details

The Course

The course begins at Main Street Plaza, near JTI Fountain.  The first few miles take runners down Memorial Drive and across the Robertson Bridge, featuring beautiful views of the Dan River and the new YMCA.  After coming off the bridge the course then joins the scenic Riverwalk Trail for the remainder of the race, eventually looping back to a fantastic finish on the Martin Luther King Memorial Bridge.  There are a couple of hills near the beginning of the race, but the course is otherwise extremely flat and fast.
