: During the out-and-back 5K, racers will travel 3.1 miles on the paved park road along rolling hills and through densely shaded areas. This popular training location is a beautiful course that beginners and experienced runners alike are sure to enjoy.
The challenging, certified course will start and finish at Parking Lot #3, and the event will be chip-timed. Strollers are welcomed, but must have a safety tether attached from the rear axle to the racer's wrist. Race marshals will be on hand to ensure the safety of all participants prior to the start, and strollers without a tether will be asked to not enter the race. Racers will finish and be directed to the refreshment tent before exiting the race area. Click here for the RACE MAP.
