-You will run two loops around the park to complete the 5k distance. Please follow the pink flags and orange surveyor tape. There will also be directional arrow signs to guide you. As I always say follow the markings not the runner in front of you. The course is a mixture of grassy open area, dirt trails and pavement. There is one large hill you will climb twice please be cautious it maybe slippery.
-Post-race food includes cookies, water, granola bars and Gatorade.
-I do old school timing you will receive a Popsicle stick with a number on it. This represents your overall placing in the race. Please turn that stick in ASAP so we can figure out the age group awards. Age group awards will be given as you finish if you top three in your age group. There will not be a formal awards ceremony since we are at an outdoor shelter.
-They are predicting snow/rain/ice on Saturday so I am unsure what the course will be like on Sunday. Be prepared for slippery conditions and temps in the 30’s.
