This is a large open grass community field. The event is set up and staged from here. From the starting area, the course heads north and onto the great trail system featuring tall pines, aspens, and creek crossings. Run one lap for the 5K or two for the 10K. The second lap starts right back in the venue creating a fun viewing area to cheer on the 10K participants.
