Course

The tag-timed course will start and finish in front the historic Old State Capitol (6th and Washington). Runners will start the race heading south on Sixth Street, then veer over to the Lincoln Home site, head back downtown and towards the State Capitol, wind their way to Washington Park, loop through the park and exit on Lincoln Avenue.

After heading north for more than a mile on Lincoln, runners will head back to the east and over to the Oak Ridge cemetery, where they will pass the Lincoln Tomb. For Abe's Amble veterans, there will some familiar terrain as the course loops through Lincoln Park before heading south towards downtown.
