The Route

The race will begin in front of the Gilmour Academy Middle School. It will continue North on SOM Center Road to Dorchester Road and follow Dorchester around to Cedar Road. Going West on Cedar, the race will loop into the Gilmour Academy Lower School, then go back onto Cedar and head towards the Tudor House. Turning back into Gilmour at Tudor, the race loops by the dormitory for students living on campus and then follows the path towards the Athletic Facility, finishing through the parking lot back at the start line.

The 2k walk will follow the same course from the Start line to the 4k marker and back to the finish. Walkers can then opt-in for color at the 4k mark if they choose.
