The 5k Course is not completely flat, but it should be reasonably fast. The entire race will be held on the closed perimeter road that circles the OCC campus. We will make two loops of the 1.5 mile road and run it in a counter-clockwise direction. The additional distance will be made up in the finishers chute in front of the SRC Arena.
The loop will start flat for the first 100 meters, hit a nice downhill and then flat for three quarters of a mile. There is a 300 meter gradual hill to go up with a net elevation gain of 60 feet. The course then turns either flat or slightly downhill back to front of the SRC Arena.
We will have bands and music all along the course, so leave your iPod at home.
