Course Info

Both the 10k and 5k courses have USTAF certification pending.  Check race website for updated certification status.  All races begin at the Village Green Center.
The 10k course is fast and flat with only a slight elevation at the halfway turnaround point.  It runs along Keith Street, then 1.5 miles on beautiful Cleveland Greenway, up Raider Drive and then circles around half-way point at Peerless Crossing before returning back along route.  Water stops are provided along the course.
The 5k course is flat most of the route with only two small hills between mile 1 and 2.  This course runs along Keith Street, up 20th, around Brown St. to Harle St. then 17th and back down Keith Street.  Water stops are provided along the couse.
The 1-Mile Luau is a short, non-competitive fun run remaining near Village Green.  This fun run is lined with palm trees, hula skirted cheerleaders and finishes at a limbo pole finish line.  Great fun for all ages.
