  • Weekly summer 3 mile fun runs starting just south of the Pavilion that is just south of the center of the park.

     

  • Course Info
  • The 3.0 mile course is slightly to moderately hilly, with 1 challenging hill beginning at the 1 mile mark.
  • The course loops counter clockwise around the lake on park roads, then passes through the start/finish area at 1.75 miles. 
  • The course then does a smaller clockwise loop around the lake, with about a half mile on a park trail right next to the lake.
  • The last ¼ mile is on small rolling hills, with a slight uphill stretch to the finish.

  • Right at Mahan Dr.
  • (Go past the community college & kelly middle school)
  • Left on John Edward Drive.
  • Take right at 3 way stop (this is the road that is not on the google map, but if you use the sattelite feature you can see it.)
