The 1-mile and 5K courses are on paved street and concrete pathway surfaces and begin on Johnson Avenue in front of Cloverland Elementary School. Each course has a challenging hill and each wind their way through beautiful neighborhoods of Oakdale. While on the course you will find that it is well marked. Each turn is chalked, coned, and/or manned by a volunteer flagger. The entire course has traffic control and traffic safety devices. Difficult intersections have multiple flaggers to direct runners and vehicular traffic. You can be rest assured our course is safe. We have one full street closure (Johnson Avenue) to allow the freedom of movement for our participants at the start/finish line and gathering area.
Our course is so well marked, even our friend Steve Gokey could find his way to the finish line. Steve is sight challenged.
