Course Description: 8.5 mile lollipop course beginning at North Creek Park and heading north along the North Creek Trail. The full course extends all the way to McCollum Park before looping back onto the North Creek Trail. Runners may turn around at any point for an out-and-back shorter distance. The course is mostly paved with the exception of a .75 mile floating boardwalk through North Creek Park. There is one traffic light to cross at 164th Street SE on the way out/back.

Runners wanting to extend their distance have two options: 1) Instead of an out-and-back, cross HWY 527 after exiting McCollum Park and run through the Mill Creek Nature Preserve and its surrounding neighborhood (total distance: 10 miles), or 2) Continue north on the Interurban Trail.
