Races begin on a wide open starting line, grass, well groomed and fast. The starting distance runs along side of the historical lake. Aprx 100 meters into the race there is a slight increase in elevation, but most will not notice. As the runners reach the 300 meter mark, the runners take a slight wide turn to the left onto packed gravel trail/road that runs through a few trees and over the narrow part of the lake. At the 800 meter mark, the course turns left into a wooded area for a few meters, out in the open and then back into a wooded trail before returning onto packed gravel at the 1st mile marker. There is a clock overhead at the 1st mile.
The finish line sprint last for aprx 180 meters outlined with Oaks and Maple trees! The finish line is located just a few meters from the starting area!
