Course Description:

The 5K course is a single loop beginning at the band shell behind the Elkin Rec Center and crossing the two new bridges over the Big Elkin Creek. After the second bridge crossing, the run will proceed to the Elkin Reservoir Lake to the new mountain bike course. The route will meander through woods over hilly terrain crossing two small creeks and an old brick bridge while running parallel with the Big Elkin Creek. The last half mile will be a flat and fast finish to the park while enjoying the views of the Shoe Factory waterfall, autumn leaves and the Big Elkin Creek.

Proceeds from this race benefit the Elkin Valley Trails Association in construction of bridges and trails from Elkin to Stone Mountain.
