The start line for all races is slightly north of Central Park on the Pacific Electric Trail.

Runners for the 5k and 10k should line-up according to their pacing, with the fastest at the front and slower runners towards the back. If you are planning to walk, please place yourself right at the back.

The route begins with an incline towards Highland Ave, before turning around for a downhill second half towards Central Park. The final 0.25 miles is on the Pacific Electric Trail, downhill on a dirt path.

10K:

After a short incline at the beginning, runners head onto the Pacific Electric Trail on a flat and fast section. There is then another incline to Highland Ave, before turning around for a downhill second half towards Central Park. There is then another loop of the starting incline and the PET.
