Course Description:: We have 2.5, 4.2, and 6 mile routes plotted out. Handouts with the turn-by-turn will be available at the run.

2.5 miles
Start at Beaver Lake park, up to the preserve loop at the north end, and then back. Run some extra through the park if you’d like. Mostly on the paved road but the Beaver Lake Preserve is a track, so a bit tricky for strollers.

4.2 miles
Around Beaver Lake and cutting back through the park. This is mostly flat, around Beaver Lake, mostly on paved but quiet roads. If you want a bit more, do the Beaver Lake Preserve loop as in the other two runs.

6 miles
This is mostly on the somewhat technical but beautiful trails in Soaring Eagle. It’s all single-width in there and there are lots of roots and rocks to watch out for, but a nice run. The handout will have turn-by-turn instructions so that you don’t stay in there forever.
