Course Description: 1-2 loops
10K - 1 loops, ~4 miles
13.1/50K - 2 loops, ~8 miles
This week we will be joining the road 13.1 and 26.2 programs and running with them. Our coaches will have their groups mingle in with the various pace groups and will run around that set pace for the runs. The groups should be running in a clockwise manner from the parking lot, everyone running the same direction. Those in the 10K trail group will simply run once around the perimeter while those in the 13.1 and 50K groups will run twice around the perimeter. There may be some bathrooms at the starting point, but if not there are at least two sections along the trail/path that you will go by some restrooms - you'll probably hit them between 3-3.5 miles into the run, they are located close to the Mason road entrance and at the bottom of the dog musuem hill.
The map below highlights all the park trails - the green line is for all the gravel/dirt trails while the light blue is the paved portion. The route we will all be following is the PURPLE line. If you ever come out here on your own though you can see how you can mix it up with the inner trails to stay all on gravel if you prefer.
