Course Maps: NEW - REVISED 10K COURSE & Same Start/Finish for NYE & NYD
The 10K and 5K run/walk for both New Year's Eve and New Year's Day start and finish adjacent to Valley River Inn, in the cul de sac next to McGrath's Fish House. All courses will follow the bike paths along the Willamette River once completing a short section through the VRC parking lot. The courses are flat, fast and scenic. The 5K is an "out and back" into Skinner Butte Park and the 10K course is different this year! The 10K remains on the Valley River Center side of the bridge the entire time, with two out and back sections that take runners over the Delta Hwy bike bridge first, then to the Owosso Bike Bridge past Marist High School second. Water station to be located on both courses.
