The 10k and 10-mile runs will continue to and around Presque Isle Park. The 10k will return to the YMCA; the 10-mile run will turn west on Hawley Street, north on the two-track trail, cross Schneider Mill Court and Powder Mill Road and proceed westerly on the Noquemanon Trail before returning along the same trail and road crossings to the multi-use path, Pine Street and the YMCA.
