Course & Course Rules

The 10K (6.2 mile) course starts and finishes on Cary Street west of Cary Court. The course is a figure 8 that uses Cary Street Road, Floyd Ave, Thompson St., Libbie Ave, Grove Ave, and Nansemond St. The course will be coned off for runners to use part of the right lane. The roads will be open to traffic. There is a two hour limit for the course. The course will have a detour this year due to the construction at Cary and Libbie
