Races start in the Elachee Visitor Center parking lot with a brief portion of the race route along Elachee Drive (required for spacing), before entering the forest. Once in the forest, runners travel along the trails of Chicopee Woods Nature Preserve. Race routes are well-marked with lots of cheerful volunteers guiding the way. The terrain features moderate single-track trails along rolling hills, with beautiful woodland scenery interspersed by several streams. The 5K race features a 150-foot suspension bridge crossing over Walnut Creek.
Course Length: The race course length has been hand-measured using a measuring wheel and is 3.107 miles. The length shown by the Trail Run Project is digitally estimated and differs from the true length.
Course Route: The route starts and ends at the Elachee Visitor Center Parking Lot. Runners start up the drive from the Elachee Visitor Center, take the gravel trailhead parking lot toward the forest and will follow the Upland Trail and turn left onto Bridge Loop and follow it through Chicopee Woods Nature Preserve, over the suspension bridge, catching the Bridge–Upland Connector to send runners back to the finish line.
Water Station: available approximately 1.75 miles into the race route.
