The course features a variety of running surfaces. You'll run through sometimes sunny fields, along shaded trails in the woods, down and up hills, and at times on pavement in the heat and humidity that the area is famous for in August. The start is outside the left field fence of the baseball diamond. From the course map for 2022 (see below), you'll see that the finish is very close to the start.

The College’s roads and parking lots are in use on the weekends and the College permits our usage of the Campus facilities with the understanding that we do not interfere with traffic and ongoing classes.
