The 10K, 5K, and 1-Mile courses all begin on Banta Road directly outside Cardinal Stadium. The 10K and 5K start at the same time with the 10K completing two loops of the 5K course. All three courses meander through the shaded, quiet streets of Homecroft and conclude with an exciting finish on the track inside Cardinal Stadium. Coach Hathaway ran many of the same streets for the three courses during his Saturday morning runs.
The courses are flat and fast. Highlights comprise of Southport High School, Homecroft Kindergarten Academy, Homecroft Elementary, PTEC, and Cardinal Stadium.
10K participants must maintain a 15 minute per mile pace. Those with strollers must start in the back. No pets please. Medical staff will be available on bikes on the course and in the stadium.
