The Course

The starting line is by the Festhalle and the race course begins heading out on Clark Street. See course map on Active.com registration page for turn by turn directions.

The course is a mile (1609 meters) and conducive for fast times and good racing.

Each turn onto 2nd Avenue provides long gradual downhills great for leaning forward and opening up your stride allowing you to increase the pace while maintaining consistent energy output. The right turn on 1st Street early in the race is an excellent marquee for the race being it is a small rise by the historic Catholic church building right before the first downhill. The rest of the course is flat. Also racers love the long downhill to the finish by Cullman's beautiful Depot Park. Awards at the park post race.

A map where the course can be seen is on the Active.com registration page.
