Our course begins at the first parking lot in Green Hill Park. All participants will follow the Roanoke River Greenway to the Tulip Tree trail and then onto a grassy field to the finish line. 5K racers will pass by the finish line and do a second inner loop mostly on gravel and grass back to the finish line.
