5K Course Description
This is a very flat and fun course taking you through Downtown Rochester! It is mixed half and half city streets and paved paths. There will be a water stop on course about 1.75 miles into the race.
The course starts at the corner of Chestnut St & Court St heading west towards The River. You then cross The River and take a left onto Exchange Blvd. Halfway down Exchange will be the first mile marker. You'll then take a left onto the Ford Street Bridge. After crossing the bridge you will take your first left onto the river path, then take a right when the path comes to a T so you are heading back North on the path. Follow the path along The River where you'll hit the water station and second mile marker. Keep following the path until it turns into South Avenue, and take a right onto Court St. You'll then follow Court right around the traffic circle and taking East Broad St. until you get to Pitkin St. where you'll take a right turn that will lead you back behind The Strong. Turn right into the parking lot, around the loop and into the finish corral! (Map)
Parking is available at The Strong and nearby City of Rochester parking garages.
