The 1/2 marathon course is mostly flat, with some gradual declines/inclines, on a paved river trail. The start will be at The Red Mill Pavilion then an out-and-back for miles 1-3. There will be two points where you leave the trail (Rindlehaven and Market St).  Signage and persons will be at critical spots.

The 5K starts at The Red Mill Pavilion, then loops to an out-and-back at the finish.
