The course meanders around the Cobbs Hill neighborhood, up the Reservoir, then back down towards Monroe Ave and Culver Rd. There will be one water stop on course. The start is on Norris Drive outside Riley Lodge. The finish is on the grass next to the softball fields along Culver Rd. The exact same finish will be used for the kids races.
