The 11th Annual Caspian Challenge, sponsored by the Greensboro Association, is open for registration on May 1.  Join us for a morning of community support and fun activity.

Proceeds from this year’s Caspian Challenge have been designated by the GA board to support the Greensboro Association’s Lake Protection Fund, which helps provide milfoil and other invasive species prevention, as well as lake quality monitoring. Whether you run, walk, or just come as a masked cheering squad – we want you to be distanced but involved!

COURSE INFORMATION

All races begin and finish at Tolman Corner at the ball field.

Our 5K is an out-and-back along Lake Shore Road. This is a rolling dirt road with some views of the lake. There is a water station at half way turn.

The 6.8 mile Lake Loop starts on pavement and runs through the historic center of Greensboro Village and then out of town on the Craftsbury Road. The course continues along the eastern shore of Caspian Lake before proceeding uphill to the Highland Lodge and first water station. After the Lodge, the route turns west and on to dirt road. Continuing on North Shore Road, runners will find their next water station soon after Campbell’s Corner turn to south. Continue on Lake Shore Road (also dirt) and then on to the finish.

All runners finish at the ball field at Tolman Corner.
