I’ve done this race twice and it’s flat and fast. I’ve had some of my best 5k times here. This year they’ve upgraded to chip timing and online registration with Setup Events.
I mapped the course at USATF and you can access the map for closer review at the following link. I estimated the start/finish point on the map and it’s probably off a little because my mapping of the course comes out a little short. But you can get a sense of the course.
