After a left down Belburn Drive, athletes will continue past Barrett Community Center. A left on Academy Avenue will bring participants to Ralston Avenue where they will pass by Carlmont Village Shopping Center. After crossing Alameda de las Pulgas, athletes will follow the course down Lyall Way. Located at Lyall Way and Lake Road Trail will be a water station and the 5k turnaround. Runners and walkers will retrace their steps back toward Ralston Avenue where they will enter Twin Pines Park for their celebratory finish.
