Lawns, continuing through Battle pass, past Nellie’s Lawn, down Long Meadow, past Lookout Hill, alongside Prospect Park Lake, and finishing back at Lincoln Rd. Lawns.

5K option this year will actually be 5.3K (3.3 miles, 1 loop) due to the park's Covid restrictions, however there will be a sign posted at the 5K mark and we will provide calculated 5K times in the results for all finishers based on their 5.3K times.
