Click on map site to see the course. If you are a walker, you will stage behind the sign that says "Walkers"... you will line up on Liberty Street and will begin walking just after the runners take off. Runners will stage on Main Street at the Liberty corner (facing south). There will be a lead bike and loads of volunteers to guide you!

Kids Dash:
Kids should line up at the corner of Ashley & Liberty, behind the “Kids’ Dash” sign. Just a short dash for the wee ones! They will receive a medal and there is ice cream, bagels and bananas at the finish for them. Bagpipers will lead the way for the Kids’ Dash. They will run/walk when the announcer says "ready, set, go!" Parents are welcome to dash with their kids. Kids’ races are not being timed, so tell them to look at the finish clock if they want to know their time.

Kids Kilometer:
1K kids should line up on Main Street in front of Conor O’Neill’s, behind the sign that says “Kids’ Kilometer”. At the finish they will receive a medal and there will be ice cream, bagels and bananas there for them. Kids will run/walk when the announcer says "ready, set, go!" Parents are welcome to run with their kids. Kid's races are not being timed, so tell them to look at the finish clock if they want to know their time. Kids Kilometer is a great spectator-friendly course!
