The 5K and 10K courses both start and end at the soccer pitch. Both courses meander through local neighborhoods, and open prairie with several undisclosed Zombie Zones. The 10K course is modified from previous year but promises to be mostly flat and fast with a portion overlaping with the 5K. Both courses are mostly on paved roads but have several sections on dirt (non-paved) roads. A map of the 5K may be downloaded here. Check back for a map of the 10K.
