9:00 AM 10K Classic

10K COURSE DESCRIPTION-The first 2 mile loop is mostly shaded & flat that starts in the center of the village on the iron bridge next to the Bridge of Flowers. On the second loop the first 1/2 mile is pretty steep, but shaded uphill, it starts as a pavement surface turning to a dirt country lane. This is followed by 70% shaded flats and downhills on pavement to the finish line on Bridge Street. It's a great spectator course!
