From the starting line on the campus of the University of Illinois-Springfield, runners follow an out-and-back course that takes them across Lake Springfield twice and through Center Park and the Henson Robinson Zoo before they hit the turnaround point, on Honeywell Road. After that, the course heads back across the bridge over the lake and back into campus, this time into Lincoln Land Community College before heading back to Shepherd Road for the race finish.
Note: The course map above provides the approximate route for the race.
