Course: The course we have at the Trimble County Park is a true cross country course. We have flat grass sections, hills, a small creek crossing, and a long woods section offering heavy shade. Races start on the youth football field. In the 3K, after a 400-yard section on the fields, the course heads through the woods as it makes its way to the back of the park. 5K runners follow the 3K course completing a run along the ball fields, with the extra distance coming from a trail in the northern section of the woods. The 2K will involve flats, hills and a woodland trail section also. This course is very well marked and we will have numerous spotters on the course for safety.
Our course is spectator friendly allowing parents and coaches to see about 2/3 of the race.
