COURSE INFORMATION

All races begin and finish at Tolman Corner at the ball field.

Our 5K is an out-and-back along Lake Shore Road. This is a rolling dirt road with some views of the lake.

The 6.8-mile Lake Loop starts on pavement and runs through the historic center of Greensboro Village, past the landmark Willey’s Store and Miller’s Thumb, and then out of town on the Craftsbury Road. The course continues along the eastern side of Caspian with gorgeous views of the Perron Farm, Aspenhurst and Black’s Point, then proceeds uphill to the Highland Lodge, where there will be a water stop. After the Lodge, the route turns northwest and on to dirt road. Following North Shore Road, lake loopers will find their next water stop at Campbell’s Corner after a series of hills. From here, runners pass summer camps and the historic Hazen Road Monument before reaching the finish.  Both the lake loop and the 5K are moderate, rolling courses. The lake loop does have some shorter and steeper inclines during the mid-section.

All runners finish at the ball field at Tolman Corner.
