As is true for all runs in the series, the course is approximately 5k (3.11 miles) long, well marked and staffed by volunteers, non-timed, and open to traffic. This particular course through the northwest hills includes some trails, that may well be muddy and sloppy this time time of year. The race is open to runners and walkers of all ages and speeds. Bring your ID if you would like to enjoy some alcoholic beverages afterwards.
