The bike route will incorporate the scenic Chase area outside of the park – the course is basically flat with a couple of short rolling climbs. There will NOT be police presence on the course so all traffic signs must be obeyed! Almost all turns are right handed and there are no traffic signals on the course. The only left hand turns are at or near the dead ends of the proceeding streets. There should be limited traffic interference; however extra caution must be taken while riding the course!

Run Course – Map

To finish with a 5k run inside the park which will include grass fields, asphalt roads and parking lots and a couple of short wooded trails
