I would recommend bug spray as the trails contain standing water in some places. If you do not wish to run through the pond you can take the detour. This detour will add about .10 of a mile to your total distance.

Jennie Hamilton was a 2003 graduate of Purdue University Calumet who devoted her all-too-brief life to health and fitness. Jennie had a passion for endurance events and was always searching for tough races to test her abilities. At the time of her death in the summer of 2006, she was training for the Ironman Triathlon (swim 2.4 miles, bike 112.5 miles, run 26.2 miles) and considering returning to school in the Nursing program to further her ability to reach out to others and provide assistance for their health needs.
This race is to honor her memory and continue the legacy she began of health, fitness and education. Part of proceeds from the race will go towards the Jennie Hamilton Scholarship Fund.
I have brought the race back to July so crossing the pond will be a refreshing end to the race.
