You’ll take Calvert street west until you reach the Rock Island Trail, which you’ll jump on and head south to the turnaround at Old Cheney. From there it will be a straight shot on the scenic Rock Island Trail to the finish line.

The 5K will Start/Finish on A Street running to Normal where runners take a right onto Normal Blvd, turn right onto S. Cotner Blvd to the Billy Wolff trail and take Billy Wolff to A Street turn left to the Finish line.
