Running the 1 Mile Kids Race

The course is an out and back on a rolling closed dirt road. There will be one water stop between the 1 and 2 mile marker.

Both the 5k and kids 1 mile race have the same start line and finish line.  The 1 mile race begins by the north east corner of the rugby field on the dirt road and heads south for a little more than half a mile. There will be a red cone and a person with a flag directing the kids to turn around and head back north toward the field/finish line.  The mile race does not make any loops on the rugby field but instead enters the field and marks a right turn to the finish.
