The 5K course is a trail run that consists of dirt roads, deer trails, and gravel paths. The terrain includes uneven ground, hills, and open prairie.
The course will start on the parade grounds and head uphill to the old cemetery. From there it will loop downhill to the Platte river and then head uphill again to the gazebo before running through the fort remains, looping back up to the cemetery and around to the finish line on the parade grounds.
Due to the nature of the area this is a cup free event, which means we will have a water station, but will not provide cups on the course.
The 1K course will start on the parade grounds, run out to the gazebo and circle back around to the finish line on the parade grounds.
