We have two different water stops on our course. One is located in the near the u-turn by Sheetz. The second is located on the trail near the dog park parking lot, after mile 2.
Participants start by the roundabout behind Discount Fashion Warehouse. They head East down Mill Run Crossing using the left side of the road. They then do a U-turn right at the Mill Run/Glenn Rd intersection, heading back up Mill Run Crossing, going West, staying on the left side of the divided road.
Runners then use Mill Run Crossing to go all the way up to the Sheetz entrance. They will then do a U-turn off of Mill Run and onto the asphalt sidewalk that parallels Mill Run. They will run this sidewalk back down to the Cactus Hallow Trail entrance. They turn right into the trail, staying to the right, and run an out and back, u-turning just before the trail splits off. They then run back to the trail head, turning right back onto the asphalt sidewalk.
Then they take that sidewalk to the dog park parking lot, where they enter the trail by the dog park, heading to the right. They do one loop of the dog park trail, exiting down the trail path that leads to the asphalt sidewalk.
Runners head East on the asphalt sidewalk, paralleling Mill Run Crossing and take that sidewalk until it dead ends near Glenn Rd.
Participants then re-enter Mill Run, staying to the right (running the opposite direction of the very first stretch of the race) and run back to the roundabout where the finish line is the same as the start line.
