Course goes along Graniteville Road, turns right on School Street, then right on Crooked Spring Rd
Then it will turn right on Radcliffe Rd, around Charlemont Ct back to Radcliffe Rd, and back to Crooked Spring Rd. It will finish back at the Parker Middle School parking lot on the opposite side.

Walkers have the option to do a shorter trail walk (1.5 miles), going only to Castlewood Dr. from the starting line to Radcliffe Rd then down Princess to end back at the start rather than where the 5K finishes. Walkers can have strollers and/or dogs.
