This fast, flat course, is USATF certified and sanctioned. The course covers country roads and crosses the Snoqualmie River. Water stations will be located just prior to both the 5k and 10k turnarounds.

The start/finish line is in front of the Farmhouse Market, at 33521 SE Redmond-Fall City Road, near Olive Taylor Quigley Park, in downtown Fall City.

Walkers and strollers are welcome, however, all participants must be finished by 10:30 a.m. when the course closes to runners and reopens to vehicle traffic.
