Rolling hills, paved and dirt roads with a fast finish on the track are featured in the 5k course. The 1/2 mile fun run/walk is not timed and will cover the last .5 miles of the 5k course. 1/2 mile participants will experience the track finish and receive a finishers award.

Course: 5k Course features a challenging uphill start on Hegel Road before turning right onto Clarence. You’ll find your first and only water stop here in front of the Atlas Township Fire Dept. You’ll follow the course to Ridge Road where you have another short climb before being rewarded with a nice long downhill on the sidewalk alongside Hegel Road. Your return to the school crosses the parking lot where you will follow cones to the track. You’ll run backwards on the track until you cross the finish line to be greeted by a custom memorial finishers medal, water and UCAN Hydrate electrolyte drink. This is a spectator friendly course! You can see the 5k course map and USATF certification info here.
The 1/2 Mile Fun Run follows the last 1/2 mile of this course and starts at 9 AM, once most of the 5k participants are no longer on the course. These finishers receive a medal when they cross the finish line!
Swag: Custom memorial finisher medal to all 5k and .5 mile finishers while supplies last
