Runners follow an out-and-back course that starts and finishes near downtown Lakeland on the eastern side of Lake Mirror, along South Lake Avenue. From there, the course heads west and south along Massachusetts Avenue, Lake Morton Drive and Lake Hollingsworth Drive through the Lake Morton Historic District, all the way south to Cleveland Heights Boulevard and Hallam Drive. The course unfolds past Cleveland Heights Country Club before heading back north toward the series of lakes that runners passed earlier in the race, back to Lake Mirror for the race finish.
