The 5K road race is a flat out and back course. Race start will be at Fred and Ethel's Lantern Light Tavern in The Historic Towne of Smithville. Runners will head east along Moss Mill Road for approximately 1 mile. The next third of the course will be along the bike path heading north on the Old Port Republic Road right-of-way and then west along the bike path through a utility easement to the Berkshire Village residential development where runners will loop to return to the finish. Please see our race map for an aerial view of the course. The entire course is on pavement with the exception of gravel stretch of approximately 20' from the shoulder of Moss Mill Road to the Old Port Republic Road bike path. The bike path also has a mulch surface for those runners who prefer not to run on pavement.
