The course veers left onto the rolling hills of Klemp Road before turning onto rural Nohr Road, a narrow tree covered road that also follows the Pigeon River. Runners turn left onto 7th Street and travel a large clockwise loop through forest and farm country before returning to 7th Street. The course turns onto Beacon, then Madison, and finally Auto Street as it makes its way through rural countryside and into the neighborhoods of Clintonville. Runners reenter Olen Park and finish in the shade of its tall trees.
