Course: The entire course is within town limits running almost entirely on residential streets with very little vehicle traffic. The course will have lots of turns and a couple short but steep hills and will not be USATF certified. The course may (but hopefully not) have snow or ice on it and runners should be prepared for any weather conditions. This is not a fast course. 

The 5k Course will start and finish by going across the brand new Spring Creek Pedestrian Bridge by the Winthrop Ice Rink. After crossing the bridge the runners will turn right onto Riverside Ave., go under the Hwy 20/Methow River Bridge on the short(~50yards) pedestrian trail to connect to Main St, turn left onto Washington St., which becomes Filer Ave., right onto Castle Ave, right onto Bridge St., right onto Englar St, right onto Corral St., Left back onto Castle Ave and from here the runners will return to the Winthrop Ice Rink the same way the came(via Filer Ave, Washington St., Main St. and Riverside Ave.).
