Course Info
The Speedy PD is set at the beautiful Tuttle Creek State Park, and both the 5K and 10K courses are USATF certified! The 5K course is very flat to the finish. The 10K Course includes a nice mile and a half climb by the time you reach the top you will be confident you can conquer anything! A fast finish is guaranteed with the last 0.7 mile decent to Race Headquarters. Both courses are paved and stroller friendly, and include scenic views of the lake, and a great atmosphere with volunteers and supporters lining the course.
