    • 5000m Course Review...Off the starting line we go straight towards the school & main highway for 300 meters before making a hard right hand turn.  Following the turn you will race the "homemade Coach Nic hill" for the 1st of three times over the hill.  The course follows the trails around the outside of the front woods popping out at the east side of the propety and following the wood line to the second time over the hill.  The course will then head into the front woods on a single track tail and by the 1 mile mark.  The course comes out of the front woods at the intersection and heads to the back woods.  At the far trail opening runners will complete a loop in the back woods going by the 2 mile mark and coming back out of the woods exit.  The course follows the trails back to the intersection where runners will make a right and follow the trail (just like they did in the opening mile) popping out at the east side of the propety and following the wood line to the third and final time over the hill.  Coming off the hill runners will sprint 200 meters to the finish line.
