Course description:

The 5K course winds through the middle of Central Park and then along Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., back North and along the back side of the park, around another sweep of the boulevard and back into the expo area for a finish. This is a USATF Certified Course (CO09034DCR) and it's flat and fast - a great course to use for a Bolder Boulder qualifier! The 10K runners pace with the 5K for the first loop and then head out into the Westerly Creek Park area, back around and into Central Park for a fast finish!

Directions to start:

The Start/Finish Lines for the Hippity Hop are made for this event - right near a playground and an open grass area where the expo will be live and fun with bunnies on the run!


Enter the parking lot at Central Park from Martin Luther King Boulevard, East of Quebec and West of Havana.
