The loop will be well marked, but runners should be aware of the course. After each loop runners will be required to check in with the volunteers and make sure their lap has been counted. A map of the route can be found here: https://www.strava.com/routes/7533064

Also I was told there will be baseball games going on in the park, so please to aware of games and watch out. This is NOT a Boston Qulifying course and is designed to be a fun run and safety is our number one prioirty, so please be careful and cautious.
