The course begins on the side of Perry Hall High School and heads east on Ebenezer Road before making a left turn onto Honeygo Boulevard. Runners will travel north on Honeygo Boulevard until they reach the turnaround point just prior to Joppa Road. After turning around, participants retrace their steps back to Perry Hall High School where they’ll finish back where the race started on the side of the school. The course is entirely on paved surfaces, and police will close lanes on Ebenezer Road and Honeygo Boulevard to allow participants to run in the road. Pets, roller skates, and other wheeled devices (with the exception of jogging strollers and wheelchairs) are not allowed on the course.
The 1k walk will take place on the Perry Hall High School track. Walkers will walk from the 5k start line to the track, complete two laps, and head back to the start line. Walkers can walk additional laps if desired.
