Run Course Summary:
This flat run is a combination of on and off road but entirely inside the Warhill Sports Complex. There will be an aid station approximately every mile and porta potties. This is a great spectating course, offering people many opportunities to cheer on their athletes. The Olympic consists of 2 loops while the half consists of 4 loops. The first 2-miles are on the WISC trail system which is a wide, rolling hardpack trail, a favorite running location for local runners including the Nationally ranked William&Mary Cross Country team. The final mile-plus of the loop is a slight uphill on an asphalt running path leading back up to T2 and Wanner Stadium. The multi-loop course will give spectators ample opportunities to cheer on their favorite athletes.
