Course Information

“The 5K course at Veteran’s Park on Valleydale Rd. is deceivingly tough.  What seems like a relatively flat course has long gentle grades for much of the first 2400 meters.  After exiting the tunnel the first time, the roller coaster ride begins…. What seemed like insignificant hills during the pre-race jog begin to take their toll on the unsuspecting racers through the woods.  The packs of racers have spread way out by the time they head back through the tunnel for the final 400 meters of the “survival of the fittest” journey to the finish line.  The picturesque and challenging course leaves the racer wanting to race this course again – but most certainly on another day! “

- Devon Hind, Head Coach Hoover High School

The 3K course does not go through the tunnel into the woods and is mostly flat with one small hill coming over the dam.  The 4K bypasses the loop around the lake and takes on the challenging wooded section described above for the 5K course.

Note: Course maps will be available onsite
