Course Description:
1 Mile course is run entirely inside the park!

The 5K course will consist of one loop only.  

The start and finish will be in Wood Oaks Park on the path directly north of the school parking lot.  

The course heads south out of the park passing the school fields and turning east onto Walters before turning south onto Lori-Lyn Lane.  It then heads north on Terri-Lyn Lane and back into Wood Oaks Green Park.  The course loops around the park pathways over to the Yorkshire Lane neighborhood north of the park. After turning onto Yorkshire, participants will go around Pony and Pinto Lanes, then continue on to circle Bristol Court before coming back on Yorkshire and re-entering the park.  The finish line is located on the same park path as the start, closest to Wood Oaks Jr. High.

The 1 Mile course consists of one loop.  The 1 Mile course will both start and finish on the same park path as the 5K.  It will not at any point exit the park.
