COURSE INFORMATION:

4.5 Mile Run:

The 4.5m course will start just as our 5 mile race did however the last part of the run will make a Right onto Hart Street from N. Montgomery Street instead of going straight to turn on E. First Street. There will be a road marshal to help direct runners. Start/Finish will be at the old main entrance to the YMCA.

2 Mile Run:

The 2 Mile course is the same as previous years.  This is as flat of a course as you can get!  2 Mile runners will be facing the opposite direction of the 4.5 Mile runners.  You will start 1 minute ahead of the walkers.  Make sure you stand in front of the walkers, they will have a different color bib number on.

2 Mile Walk:

The 2 mile walk is the same as the 2 Mile Run course.  Walkers will be positioned behind the 2 Mile Runners and start 1:00 behind.  Walkers are absolutely not allowed to run at any time! You will have a different color bib on than the runners.  Road marshals will ask you to walk if you are seen running.  If you would like to run/walk, sign up for the 2 Mile Run as you are more than welcome to run/walk!

RACE PACKET PICK-UP:

Race packets will be available for pick up Friday, November 28th at the Hollidaysburg Area YMCA. You may also pick-up your packet on race day here as well; however, we recommend you come as early as 7am to get a parking spot close to the YMCA.
