From here, runners continue south along Lake Harriet, making almost a full loop around the lake before continuing north along William Berry Parkway toward Lake Calhoun. Runners then make a lap around Lake Calhoun, passing through Lake Calhoun Park before heading south again and making a second loop around Lake Harriet and Lake Calhoun.
