Runners start the race at the original Walton “Five and Dime,” the first of the stores that became the Wal-Mart that’s so ubiquitous across the nation today. After the first few mostly flat miles through town and just outside the city, runners follow what is roughly a clockwise loop course around the edges of the city, a route that also features stretches along the tree-lined trails and hills to the north of town.
Note: The course map above provides the approximate route for the race. Though every effort has been made to ensure its accuracy, changes are sometimes made to race routes due to weather conditions, road closures or other circumstances that can require a course to be changed.
