5K Course Interactive Map Printable PDF
5K Athletes will leave the marina lot and turn right onto the main park road (running with traffic as required by Park Management), to begin a clockwise loop.  After just under 1 1/4 miles, athletes will turn right and run a short section before turning left onto Bear Creek Trail. After completing a dogleg, athletes will continue on the trail until they once again reach the main park road.  Returning the way they came to the finish line and the cheers of friends and family, 5K athletes will have access to water at one aid station twice along the way, at or near 1.25 and 2.25 miles.  NOTE:  Due to the park’s requirement that athletes run WITH traffic on the road portions of the course, we will be coning off a shoulder for your safety.  Please be sure to stay as close to the shoulder / away from auto traffic as possible at all times, OUTSIDE THE CONES.
Course Records:  M 18:02 / 5:49 Pace (Cody Waite) – F 24:42 / 7:58 Pace (Sarah Wilson)

 

10K Course Interactive Map Printable PDF
10K Athletes will leave the marina lot and turn right onto the main park road (running with traffic as required by Park Management), then turn right onto Bear Creek Trail to begin a counterclockwise loop.  After about 2 1/2 miles, athletes will complete a short dogleg then continue toward Fisherman’s Trail and the reservoir dam.  After a left turn onto Kumpfmiller Dr and about 2 miles, athletes will pass the park entrance and continue on the main park road to complete the loop and finish to the cheers of the crowd.  Four aid stations will be available for hydration at about the 1, 2.5, 3.6 & 5 mile marks.  NOTE:  Due to the park’s requirement that athletes run WITH traffic on the road portions of the course, we will be coning off a shoulder for your safety.  Please be sure to stay as close to the shoulder / away from auto traffic as possible at all times, OUTSIDE THE CONES.

Half Marathon Course Interactive Map Printable PDF
Half Athletes will leave the marina lot and turn right onto the main park road (running with traffic as required by Park Management), then turn right onto Bear Creek Trail.  After about 2 1/2 miles, athletes will begin a 3.5 mile dogleg (7 mi round trip) then rejoin the 10K loop.  Continuing toward Fisherman’s Trail and across the dam, then left onto Kumpfmiller Dr and past the park entrance, athletes will have had access to 9 aid stations, spaced about 1 – 1.5 miles apart as they finish to the cheers of the crowd.  NOTE: Due to the park’s requirement that athletes run WITH traffic on the road portions of the course, we will be coning off a shoulder for your safety.  Please be sure to stay as close to the shoulder / away from auto traffic as possible at all times, OUTSIDE THE CONES.

5K $35 $40 $45* $50*
10K $40 $45 $50* $55*
Half $55 $60 $65* $70*

*Because goodies must be ordered far enough in advance to have them printed & shipped, late and race day entrants will receive SWAG on a first come, first-served basis. If the shirt size you prefer is unavailable when you register, please select your next best size to be sure you get one, then stop by the packet pick-up area after you race to see if a swap is possible.

Without YOU, these events simply wouldn’t be possible. From event prep to packet pick-up, and from course marshals to meal service, there are a variety of ways you can help. There’s no experience necessary, but space is limited so please let us know you’re available right away! Students: Earn those credits in the most fun way possible! Groups: Tired of those bake sales & car washes? We are happy to be a part of your fundraising efforts! (Donations begin with just 10 volunteers and you need not be an official nonprofit.) Athletes: We know endurance sports can take a big chunk out of your pocket book and we’ve got your back. Ask about our ‘Earn a Free Entry’ program!
