Race Day 5KM Route

Race Route Description and Map:

The route for the race starts in Kingston park and goes out the path turning left on Paxton, taking a right on orangewood, and running down to Gregory drive where it take a left. From there the route follows Gregory Dr. out to the Baldoon which is our turn around point. We make our way back the way we came except instead of turning left on Paxton we turn left to go down the Brown Drain path back to Paxton where we make a right and follow Paxton back to the path to re-enter the park and finish the loop around the park.

 

Can I Run with My Dog?

In recent days we have had some questions about bringing dogs to run in the race. Although we love our animal friends we feel it’s a liability and a tripping hazard to have dogs on the course.   

We thank you for your understanding with this matter.
