The RUN (updated run course for 2016)
The majority of the run course keeps runners on the YMCA campus and close to the spectators. It’s an out-and-back course that includes quiet neighborhood roads. The great thing is that you’ll be able to share the energy with your fellow athletes as you approach the finish line!
Located on the athletic fields at Harris YMCA, the finish line/sponsor village is sure to be a big hit and a perfect place to end an amazing event!
