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 the south. Continue on Lake Shore Road (also dirt) to the finish at Tolman Corner (ball field).



Race results with age group winners (bragging rights!) will be posted online.

Lake loop race, 5K Walk and 5K run all start at 8:30am.

Refreshments for all entrants at the finish.

Parking is along Hardwick Street and Lake Shore Road. Please honor posted parking rules.
