***** RUNNING ROUTE: PLEASE USE CAUTION*****

Lift your hearts to heaven – but keep your eyes on the road.  Use as much caution as you would on a trail run. Due to the closure of the floodwall, we’ve ended up with a less-than-ideal route with uneven pavement and unattractive scenery – ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!  The event is symbolic, for, as you travel through less than spectacular surroundings, you will bring beauty to the streets.

PARKING: Two lots have been reserved: 3rd & Gratiot AND 4th & Gratiot.
WATER: This is a “cup-less” route (no water stations along the route).  Please hydrate in preparation.  Water will be provided at the finish are prior to and after the events.
Course Etiquette: We love runners and walkers of all abilities. If you are joining us to walk, please allow for the runners to start the course in front of you. 
RESTROOMS: Restrooms are available at St. Mary of Victories’’ Mindszenty Hall, as well as the start/finish area.
