Course description:

5K  (3.1 miles) - Starting at the Rec Distric Building, participants will travel west along the river side of the Arkansas Riverwalk for about 1.55 miles. Turning around at 9th street, participants will return on the same path until they come to the juncture for the Bluff Trail. This will lead participants along a tree-lined, shaded section of the Riverwalk until they reach the Rec District Building. 

10K  (6.2 miles) - Starting at the Rec Distric Building, participants will travel west along the river side of the Arkansas Riverwalk. Passing under 9th St., through Centennial Park, and to the pedestrian bridge on the way to Pueblo Community College, Fremont Campus, participants will turn around just before Tunnel Drive. Returning the way they came, they will turn right at the juncture for the Bluff trail, and take the tree-lined, shaded path back to the Rec District Building. 

Aid station: There will be one aid station at the turnaround (mile 1.6) with treats and goodies.
