The start is on Norris Drive outside Riley Lodge. The course meanders around the Cobbs Hill neighborhood, up the Reservoir, then back down towards Monroe Ave and Culver Rd. The course has hills, but ends on a nice downhill onto the grass finish line. The finish is on the grass next to the softball fields along Culver Rd.
Kids Course Description
The kids race will be on the grass by the softball fields and will be a single 1/2 mile loop done once. The kids races will use the same finish as the 5K. We ask that parents DO NOT run with their children as the course is not big enough to accomodate children and parents/guardians. Our priority is the safety of the children and their ability to have a non obstructed or congested course. Parents/Gaurdians may run in the middle of the course but can not run on the course.
From east or west - Take 490 to Culver Rd. Exit. Head South on Culver Rd. Turn left onto Norris Dr. Riley Lodge is on the left, next to Riley Lake.
There is limited parking available at Riley Lodge, but plenty of parking in the Cobbs Hill area, including Norris Dr, the Tennis Courts Lot as well as street parking in the adjoining neighborhoods depending on what time you arrive. Norris Dr. will be closing at 8:15am for course set up.
Parking is available in the Armory lot BUT it is limited and parking is only allowed in the back of the lot!
