10 MILE

DESCRIPTION

Hills, what hills? The freshly designed 10 mile course will run much faster with race start on High Street, then following a counterclockwise loop around Wesleyan campus. After passing through the start area, the route continues past Wesleyan’s athletic fields around mile 4 and south into residential Middletown. The route takes runners through the Wadsworth State Forest, with a very fast last third of the race to the finish on historic Main Street.
