Course Description

Our course begins and ends at the Koka Booth Amphitheatre, looping through the beautiful greenery of Regency Park along the shores of Symphony Lake.

The 5K route leads out on Regency Parkway, turning left into the park and running along the lake to Ederlee Drive. A right on Ederlee and another right on Regency Parkway loops runners back to the finish area in the park near the stage.

The 10K route also begins on Regency Parkway, turning left into the park and running along the lake. A left turn on Ederlee Drive takes runners on a quick out-and-back with a hairpin turn to head back south on Ederlee. A right turn on Regency and another right onto Michelangelo Way leads runners through the neighborhood, heading back to Regency Parkway. One more right turn on Regency and our 10K runners head back out along the greenway through the park, completing the loop a second time before finishing in the park near the stage.
