The 5K course will start and end at the same place that the half marathon does. Both races start in front of the Topky Library and head West on Walnut Blvd. At approximately 1/2 mile the half marathon runners will turn left on Union followed by a left on West 7th St.
The 5K runners will continue on Walnut crossing Lake Road to Norwood Avenue to a turn around at the 1000 block. They will continue back across Lake Road to Walnut then turn right on Walnut followed by a left on 7th. Click on the map below to view the full 5K course.
