The new course goes on the greenway expansion in Shelby Park, instead of out and back to the turnaround on Davidson Street by Vinny Links golf course. The second mile uses the YMCA trail and the 16th mile uses the Shelby Park Nature Center Loop. This allows for the start to be below the dam at the edge of the trailhead parking lot. No more hill climbing to get to the start. Race starts at 7:30 AM Central Time. In case the new trailhead building is available (now under construction), the packet pickup may be there instead of at the motel.
Pedestrian Bridge over Cumberland River.
The runners will pass this point at miles 9, 11, and 18.
