We will have all registration and check in at Hometowne Inn, exit 18 off I-29, then about 300 feet from the exit ramp on the north side.

All parking will be on the north side of the road.

The course is flat and goes west 5.4 miles, then angles southeast, and loops back to the north, and we have water and Gatorade stations along the route.

Spotters and vehicles are out until everyone is back in, and it is well marked.

Volunteers will help direct parking, and the food will also be at Hometowne Inn, so it's only 100 feet from the finish line to the pizza, bagels, candy, pop, water, gatorade and other beverages.

Registration starts about 7:20 am, the half walkers leave 8:15 am, the runners leave 8:30 am, and the 5k leave at 8:45 am.
