Course Map
The race starts at the bottom of Long Branch-Garland Neighborhood Park across the street from the Long Branch Community Center. From there the racers will head down Long Branch Trail, cut into Haddon Drive, and then across Houston Avenue. At the bottom of Houston a race marshall will direct racers to turn right, heading up Sligo Creek Parkway. Just before Piney Branch, participants will turn around and head back down Sligo Creek Parkway, passing the Houston intersection. A race marshall will be standing at the turn-around point (about where Maplewood Avenue runs perpendicular to the Parkway). The racers will turn back up Sligo Creek Parkway and take a slight right back on to Houston Avenue. The route continues across Houston, up Haddon, and then back on the Long Branch Trail to end the race back at the starting line in Branch-Garland Neighborhood Park.
