Runners follow an out-and-back course that winds through the campus of Western Carolina University in western North Carolina, with the starting and finish line on University Way. From the starting line on campus just off University Way, near WCU’s Balsam Residence Hall, runners will start the race by heading out through campus, where they’ll return for the finish. The course also takes runners along a stretch of the Tuckasegee River in the neighborhoods just off campus.
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.
