The 2K run will start at Anglerís Park end of the River Walk Trail and go up river to the point where the trail narrows between two trees where the trail has white painted shoulders. That is the turn around for the 2K run. The 10K bike course is entirely on hard surface roads. It will start from the Anglers Park parking lot with 1 and 3/4 clockwise laps on the Riverwalk Trail LOOP, then go up the steep hill on Northside Dr. Turn right onto Stinson Dr toward the airport. Here is how this yearís course is different from last yearí course. Turn around at the corner of Stinson Dr and Airport Dr. From returning on Stinson Dr, turn right onto Slayton Dr toward the Institute. Turn around at bottom end of Slayton Dr and return on Slayton Dr to Stinson Dr. Turn right onto Stinson Dr. Race ends about 80 yards past Northside Dr at the 30 MPR sign on Stinson Dr. Unlike 2003, this yearís course does NOT include the cul-de-sac on Stinson Dr. After the Race the bikers will go down the steep hill at a slow and safe rate to the refreshments in the Anglerís Park parking lot. There will be no entry fee, no prizes, and it will be open to the public. Those who want to run, but not bike, may do so. Those who want to do the 10K bike race must run the 2K race immediately prior.
