Participants gather on the River’s Edge Trail behind The Front and run toward the federal courthouse. You will take a left onto the Central Avenue West walking bridge. At the end of the bridge, take a left onto the River’s Edge Trail. You will continue on the trail until you cross River Road at the designated area, which will be manned. You will continue toward the skate park to enter Gibson Park. You will take a right once you enter Gibson Park to run the big loop around the park. Then exit Gibson Park and head back the way you came. There will be a water/aid station half-way through the course.
Kids will have an opportunity to show their stuff. At the finish line of the 5k, there is a course set up for the kids to run. There will be two races: one lap or two laps. Of course, kids are welcome to participate in either one or both. Parents and fans can stand in the center of the course and cheer them on.
