It is a 5km run - it's you against the clock.
The course starts at Magic Island Park, follows the shared use trail heading northwest along the river to the drinking fountain near Stockton Street, turns back along the trail towards the start at Magic Island heading southeast, continues along the trail past Magic Island to just past the bridge over the Elk River, then returns back the same way to the finish at Magic Island Park.
The course is 5000m (5K) long. The course is at Magic Island Park, Charleston. The course is run entirely on concrete paths. Some sections of the course may accumulate mud, leaves and puddles after rain. Dependent on availability, marshals will be at key sections of the course, or signs will be in place.
Please remember that the parkrun uses shared paths. For the continued success of the event, please give way to other park users. This won't hurt your time, it won't stop you from getting a PB and it will make sure everyone continues to enjoy the event.
