Course: With a little walking, runners are visible over approximately 1/2 of the course with great views of start and finish for spectators. Course is mostly flat, but with some short, challenging hills and a tunnel. Terrain varies and includes grass, asphalt, gravel road, dirt, and cement sidewalk. The high school course loops around Roper Park, passes through a tunnel (under Refuge Rd.) to a loop behind Pickens Jr. High, and then passes back through the tunnel to finish in Roper Park. Finish is close to the start.



The middle school course involves much of the same terrain and will also go through the tunnel to the Pickens Jr. High  part of the course. Runners will return to finish on the same field they start on.



Facilities: Restrooms will be available.

Concessions: Food and drinks will be available.

Spectator Admission: A $5 entry fee will be charged for adults, $2 entry for students and children.
