Half Marathon Course: The course starts & ends at the midpoint of the Chessie Trail. It consists of an out & back loop east toward Buena Vista, & then an out & back loop west toward Lexington. The race will start & finish on the Chessie Trail at the McKethan Park/I-81 overpass. From McKethan Park the course will go about 3.92mi toward Buena Vista. There is one detour due to a washed-out bridge over the South River where the trail shifts over to Stuartsburg Rd for 1/3 mi. Please stay on the west (trail) side of the paved road, both out & back. This is the only section of the course where you will encounter a very short, very steep hill at Old Sheppard Rd. Just before the Buena Vista trailhead, the course will turn around and retrace the trail 6.55mi toward Lexington. It will pass the starting line & continue until reaching the Veterans Memorial Bridge (Rt 11) in Lexington. At the Veterans Bridge, the course will return 2.63mi back to the finish at McKethan Park.

5K Course: Race will start & finish on the trail at McKethan Park/I-81 overpass. From McKethan Park the course will go towards Lexington 2.5K, then turn around near the middle of the 2 horseshoe bends, & proceed back to finish at McKethan Park.
