The 1-mile run will turn around before the intersection with Wright Street. The 5K turns around near the Dead River Bridge. 10K race continues to and around Presque Isle before returning. Returning runners will use the multi-use bike along Pine Street and then cross Pine Street to return to Lakeview Arena.

The half marathon starts at Lakeview Arena then heads east on the sidewalk on Fair Avenue before crossing Lakeshore Boulevard and proceeding south on the multi-use pathway. The course continues south on the multi-use pathway to the turnaround at the Carp River. The course then returns toward Lakeview Arena, going past Lakeview Arena and continuing to and around Presque Isle before returning. Returning runners will use the multi-use bike along Pine Street and then cross Pine Street to return to Lakeview Arena.

The duathlon will consist of a 5k run, 10-mile mountain bike, and 5k run. The 5k run will follow the same route described above. The 10-mile mountain bike race will start at Lakeview Arena, cross Pine Street and enter the Berry Events parking lot, then proceed through NMU to the pedestrian corridor located west of Lakeshore Boulevard, in the process crossing Wright Street, Hawley Street, Schneider Mill Road, and Powdermill Road.
