Skunk Cabbage Classic routes
The 10K is an out-and-back on a mostly flat, fast course, with two water stops. Start on Garden Avenue in front of Barton Hall and follow the same course as the half-marathon, out Game Farm Road to Stevenson. At the 5k mark on Stevenson Road, you’ll be turned around by volunteers at the community-sponsored water stop. From here, reverse your course back to the Cornell campus. Re-enter campus on Tower Road, then head toward the Clock Tower, past the Dairy Bar and the Wilson Synchrotron on one side, and Cornell Botanic Gardens on the other. Finally, enjoy a fast downhill to the finish on Garden Avenue.
