The courses for the 10K and 5K will be precisely measured and adhere to USATF standards. The courses are mostly shaded and travel over one of the prettiest areas of Wilmington. The awards presentation and post race party take place near the Greenfield Lake amphitheater under a canopy of crepe myrtles and oak trees There will be running related exhibitors, cold beverages and good snacks while you kick back with your runnin' buddies. You can park as close as 25 meters from the start line so bring dry clothes and stay for the awards and prize drawings.
