Maps + Directions

The 15K course is hilly and a great tune up for late spring marathons or the Flower City Half-Marathon. Three water stops on course with water. The start is on Douglas Road and the finish is on the dirt road next to Stewart Lodge. This is an out and back on Douglas Rd.  Runners will be running north on Douglas crossing Canfield, going around the loop and heading back to the finish line.  There are hills, but they are friendly hills.
