5-Mile Run Course:

Runners will be staged at the Wharf Street Parking Garage in the Wharf District near Oliverio's Restaurant. Following Clay Street to Mechanic Street, runners will turn left on Don Knotts Boulevard, cross Decker's Creek, take a left at Garrett Street and right onto the Caperton Rail Trail. The course continues northwest on the paved trail to the WVU Core Arboretum.

Upon entering the Arboretum, runners will encounter a quarter mile of single-track dirt trail until the mid-point of the loop back on the rail trail. Runners will complete the final two miles on the rail trail to the finish line at the Hazel Ruby McQuain Riverfront Park - just before the Decker's Creek Bridge. Except for a slight uphill approach to the WVU Core Arboretum, the course is primarily flat or downhill.

The 5-miler is part of the Morgantown Grand Prix Series.

2-MILE WALK for Individuals or Families:

Walkers will go south on the trail to a turnaround point past Morgantown Lock and Dam and return to the finish line behind Oliverio's Restaurant.
