Course Description . . . [ USATF Course Map ]

Sorry . . . NO dogs. Strollers are permitted in the race,but must remain towards the back at the start of the race.

The 5K run/course features an out-and-back course along the Caperton Trail, which parallels the Monongahela River the entire length from Hazel Ruby-McQuain Park to the turnaround at point near the Morgantown Utility Board water plant. A water and snack station will also be available for runners/walkers.

The surface is primarily hardcap but runners and walkers will cross two wooden bridges. The course is overwhelmingly flat, but the first quarter-mile does feature a 250-foot incline that, by nature of an out-and-back course, participants must go down to cross the finish line.
