Get Ready For The Finish Line
The 2.5 mile, double loop course is a challenge. The short, steep and long rising hills on this course, as well as the twists and turns, brings out the best in runners. The diverse participants range from former Olympians, university and high school star athletes, seasoned teams, and less competitive, but goal oriented, runners. Certified by the USATF, many runners use their time here to help qualify for larger races. Runners from across the country come back to Media each year to participate.
