All 10k runners will follow the 5k route for the first half of their race (read above). When the 5k runners turn left at the Ramada Inn to finish, 10k runners will continue straight on North St. Runners will cross the bridge going over I-95, and will continue all the way to make a left turn on Wendy Way. They will continue on Wendy Way and turn right onto Douglas Ave. Runners will follow Douglas Ave all the way to the end, and turn left onto Hillview Ave. They will then take their first right onto Waycott Way, and will follow the road around Sheila Cr.

0.5 Miles

On Ramada Campus

After multiple trial and error years we have perfected the 1/2 mile loop for kids 10 and under. Instead of heading out toward the 5k / 10k route, the 1/2 mile runners will line up at the start facing the opposite direction. They are then able to run a large loop around the Ramada Inn parking lot and registration area. This allows for constant visual contact with the kids running the race, and also prevents them from running on any roads with traffic.

Parents and guardians are welcome to run with their trotters, whether they have signed up for another race or not. This ensures all kids have a fun and safe run!
