Description:

Note: This course was precisely measured. Map distances shown at the Runningmap.com links are approximate, but close to these precise measurements.

Start on Porter Rd. just south of the crest of the hill between
Curtin Rd. and Park Ave. Head west on Curtin. Take Curtin to Shortlidge Rd. Turn left on Shortlidge and run down the hill. A block down from Curtin, take the right on Pollack Rd. Continue on Pollock for about half a mile. At Burrowes, make the right and climb the hill, curving to the right as Burrowes turns into Curtin Rd.  Continue down Curtin Rd for the long, relatively flat run to the finish just before Curtin ends at Porter Rd.
