COURSE DETAILS

IC Imagine’s campus is a beautiful place to run!  The 5K and Fun Run routes are the same as last year.

The 5K route is a 2-loop course that consists of mixed surfaces including dirt road, trails, grass and pavement.  This flowy course will keep runners and walkers interested and challenged. The course is spectator friendly from start to finish.

The Fun Run route is 2 loops around the arrival/dismissal loop.  The run surface is pavement.

PAY ATTENTION! Follow the signs with arrows and the course markings.  Do not just ‘follow’ the person in front of youif they are not paying attention and go the wrong direction you will too! It is up to YOU to know the course and the route you are running.  Please be courteous and give high fives and thumbs up to your fellow runners and volunteers out on the course.  There will be water stations on the course.
