This is a mixed terrain race across a variety of dirt tracks, grass, and well-used pathways. Initially the course is relatively hilly, however it flattens out toward the middle and the last stretch is downhill.
This is a lapped race, with runners completing it twice. The park will remain open to the public and runners must be aware of pedestrians throughout.
The course will have marshals at all major turnings during the route and distances will be clearly marked.

Did the 5k in 2022
The ratio of entertainment per amount of participants was adequate, but it might have been even better with two MCs rather than only one, so there was some reciprocity in the commentary being given. More banter would have been more interesting to hear.The sound system could have also been a little tighter, as it was hard to hear the music in such a wide area.
