Due to construction the course has been modified.  The start will take place on Hartshorn near the Gulling parking lot and finish inside the stadium.  The course is mostly flat and fast, routed through residential areas surrounding the University. It will be police protected with splits at each mile and water stations. Runners should report for the start of the race in front of the MAAC (formerly Timken Physical Education Building) on Hartshorn Avenue.  (The website is currently experiencing issues resulting in the map not showing up - maps will be provided at check-in)
