The course measures just short of 1-mile and is a great way to get your morning exercise before returning to Wolftrap for the exciting post-race events. 

The course is as follows: Start at Wolftrap ES on Talisman. Turn left on St. Roman Dr. Turn right on Abbotsford. At the first opening in the median (at the intersection of Abbotsford and Midlothian), turn left around the median and return to Wolftrap ES.



5k Race Route: Starting at 8:30am, racers will take off towards Beulah road on Talisman on their 5k adventure. The road will be marked at major turns and volunteers located in various places on the route to assist racers. There will be one water station located at the bottom of Abbotsford to keep our racers hydrated. The 5k race map can be found here.
