Below are the planned courses for the Race for Research 5K and Half Marathon events. Please note that both courses are entirely on paved roads. The area of Tradition is relatively new and Google does not yet have all the roads mapped. This is why on the course maps it appears the routes run on unpaved roads.

5K

There will be 1 aid station on the 5K course at approximately mile 2.
