Run to the cone turnaround at the two-way/one-way split, then run back to the triangle, make a left and go to Francis Bay Beach, make a right onto the boardwalk, run the boardwalk and make a right onto the Francis Bay walking trail. Make a left onto the road back to the triangle. Make a right at the triangle and run to the cone turnaround at the split again. Go back to the triangle, make a right and run past the Annaberg parking lot, up the road. Keep right and run back down the hill (do not go into the ruins). The course will NOT use the wood stairs or go into the Annaberg ruins this year.
1-Mile Kids' Fun Run
(1.18 mi. actual distance)
Starting from the Annaberg Ruins parking lot, run to the triangle intersection. Make a left and go to the cone at the two-way/one-way split -- note this is past the Old Danish Road pull-off and is the same cone turnaround being used for the 5K. Turn around at the cone and run back to the triangle. Make a right and run back past to the Annaberg parking lot, uphill on the road, around the loop and immediately back down the road. Do not go into the ruins. Finish in the chute in front of the parking lot.
