All events start and finish at the same point next to the Cement Kilns.

The half marathon course is two loops of a 5.25 generally flat course on immaculate ashphalt without any potholes. The 5.25 mile loop contains a spur out and back at mile 4.25 that adds enough distance to make each loop 6.55 miles.

The 10k follows the same loop does the same loop as the half marathon with a shorter out and back spur to get 6.2 miles in one loop.

Pickup will be near the Start/Finish Line at the day of the event starting at 9 am.

There will be plenty of parking by the Start/Finish area.

Please continue to move through the finish line to receive water, your medal and food. 
There will be vegan and vegetarian options available.  
There will also be a professional DJ/MC.
