The Course

Course MapThe Clifford Park 5k Series course is like nothing else in the area. You’ll run a full 3.1 miles all throughout Clifford Park and will never touch an inch of pavement.

The race starts and finishes in the North end of the park on the Black Trail. After heading out on the black trail moving South, runners will turn West onto the Blue Trail. The course continues until they turn onto the first entrance to the Yellow Trail, where runners go all the way around the yellow loop, and return to where they originally left the Blue Trail. Then, they turn back onto the Blue Trail and follow that all the way to the Orange Trail. Here, you’ll find some of the biggest challenges on the course before heading to some awesome views on the Red Trail. Once runners turn right onto the red trail, they will encounter some single track areas, and even pass by a waterfall on their way back to the Black Trail. Nearing the end, runners will turn back onto the Black Trail, and run from there all the way back to the start line.

See below for a course video to get a better understanding of what the terrain will be like, and so you can see what twists and turns you’ll encounter during the race! You can also print off a copy of the map and run the course all week long for training. We leave our markers up all summer so you know you’re on the right route. They look like the red trail marker with the white runner in our logo.
