Course Description

Just to keep me on my toes, the course has changed! Good news: no roads, no officers to pay, more scenic. We will start and finish on the Portage Bike and Hike next to Beckwith's Orchard (which is where you will park) at 1617 Lake Rockwell Rd in Kent. We will run West on the path for 1.5 miles and turn around to head towards Towner's Woods. At Towner's, we will do a 2.2 mile run around the perimeter (Lakeside Trail to Bingham Ski Trail), then continue East to Wall Rd. Turnaround at Wall and on way back take one more perimeter lap before finishing. The marathon does it twice.

Aid stations at 1.6, 3.2, 3.8, 6, 7.4, 8.8, 10.2, 12.4 for each lap.
