Start Locations and Course

5k Run:
8:00 AM at Welcome Stadium

Course:
The Lou Cox Memorial 5K is one of the fastest 5Ks in the Midwest! Starting on Edwin C. Moses Blvd. in Dayton, OH, the race heads north to Stewart St. Here, runners will cross over the Little Miami River and then turn south on Patterson Blvd. Runners will run to the turnaround spot and then return to Stewart St. via the paralleling bike path. After crossing back over the river, the runners will run back to Welcome Stadium before running 350 meters on the track to the finish line. The Lou Cox Memorial 5K has a slight elevation loss, as the finish line on the track sits lower than the start line on Edwin C. Moses Blvd. There is no noticeable elevation change until a downhill into the parking lot at 2.5 miles.
