Course Description: 
​This course is extremely flat and fast and is on an out and back course. The trail is a paved path that is 10 feet wide.  It starts in the Downtown Midland area going both along the Titabawsee River almost to Sanford.  The trail is protected by a thin tree line on the west side for most of the route so the wind could be a factor on some days.
Race Entry Gift:   Tech. Running Gloves
