Course description:

The course is fairly flat and follows a route entirely within Cottonwood Creek Park. The running surface is about 50% maintained dirt paths with the remainder on paved walkways (the path on the south side of the creek was recently paved). The finish is on the park’s grass soccer fields. The course is good for spectators, as participants can see runners for several hundred meters at the start and the finish.

Directions to start:

The start and finish are in the main soccer/sports fields in the center of the walking loop.


Please use any of the public parking areas for Cottonwood Creek Park.
