Course Info:
This course will take you on a tour of some of West Points greatest features and is broken into 2 loops (appx 10mi and 3mi). You start at Michie stadium next to Lusk Reservoir and then head down towards Thayer gate. From there, you turn left onto Thayer road and enjoy a gorgeous mile pinned between the Hudson River and Colonels Row. After you run under and past Mahan and Thayer Halls (our primary academic buildings), you are treated to a great view along Trophy Point. From there, you head down ODIA hill and run along the base of the Hudson where the cadets take their 2 mile PT test. Youll pass both the indoor (Gillis Field House) and outdoor track (Shea Stadium) before heading up a steady climb and back to Washington Road. At the top youll run past the West Point cemetery where hundreds of the Long Grey Lines finest rest. From there its a scenic view of Lee Housing where youll reach the 10k mark before heading up towards Keller Army Community Hospital and turning into Grey Ghost and New Brick housing. As you leave the housing you can breathe easy on a comfy stretch headed back towards the cadet area on Merritt Rd and merging back towards Michie stadium. You finish the 1st (and largest loop) after circling around Lusk Reservoir and crossing the stone bridge.

The second loop is a fast 5K back towards Thayer gate then another great view of the Hudson along Thayer road. This time after passing thru Trophy Point, youll continue towards the Catholic Chapel and head up the hill for a final loop of Lusk Reservoir before entering Michie stadium to kick to the finish line at the end of the field.
