The 8K (5 mile) course, which starts and finishes at The Millworks, runs through The Grove and Walton Park communities and the historic Midlothian Coal Mine Park. The course primarily is on roads and paved pathways, but there are small sections of trail.
One water stop will support runners at the intersection of Glenpark Lane and Glenmeadow Road, just before mile 3 on the course.

In consideration of the safety of all participants, the following are not allowed on the course during the race: baby joggers, baby strollers, animals on leash, skateboards, inline or roller skates, or bicycles.
