Hippie Chick’s route starts and ends at Ron Tonkins Field at 8:00a. The course is ran or walked along flat tree lined streets with beautiful scenic views. There is an out and back section that I personally love.  I enjoy seeing all the women that are in front of me go by, and the women behind me as I head back.  It is inspiring both ways!
