About the course
Both the 5k and 10k courses are "loop" course through the rolling hills and countryside of Butler County.  Most of the course will be run on rural roads in Adams Township with the approximate halfway point for the 5k lying in Valencia Boro.  The halfway point for the 10k is in the countryside on Ridge Road.

The course will start at the Three Degree Road entrance to the Mars Area High School and will proceed down Three Degree Road towards Valencia, making a left onto Denny Road. At this point the 10k will proceed down Denny Road while the 5k turn right onto Ridge Road. 5k runners will proceed on Ridge Road then turn right onto Butler Street Extension and proceed into Valencia Boro, turning right onto Hayes Street. 5k runners will proceed a short distance on Hayes Street then turn right onto Three Degree Road and proceed back to the Mars High School, turning left into the parking lot at the Three Degree Road entrance (the starting point of the race) and proceed through the parking lot to the front of the School and the finish line.

10k runners, after proceeding on Denny Road, will turn right on to Ridge Road where they will loop back toward Valencia and run on some of the same streets as the 5k runners, then back to the Mars High School.

There will be a water relief and aid stop in Valencia Boro in the Valencia United Methodist Church Parking lot for both 5k and 10k runners.  The United Methodist Church is between George and Lee Streets in Valencia Boro.  Additional water stops for the 10k runners will be provided at other areas of the 10k course.

Medical personnel provided by Quality EMS will be on hand to provide emergency medical assistance should it be required.  Security and traffic control functions will be provided by Police and Fire Police from Adamas Twp and Middlesex Twp.
