Course Description Come celebrate our 12th year and support the Middletown Youth Athletic Association. This is a challenging run for all abilities on scenic and hilly country roads that will help you work off some Thanksgiving dinner. Both the 5k and 15k are an out-and-back course that start & end in Bodman Park. Limited to 900 participants. Join our Facebook group for updates.
UPDATED 11/24/12: The start location was moved due to some storm damage and to make the event distances more accurate. The start line is in Bodman Park just on the other side of the tennis courts. From Bodman Park fieldhouse follow the cones from the back of the ball field to the start line. It will take about 5 minutes to walk to the start. Baggage check available at the Bodman Park Fieldhouse
UPDATED 11/19/12: This year we will also be making a donation to The Middletown Disaster Relief Fund - a fund set up to directly help those Middletown residents in need.
