And, yes, the 12K is going away, replaced by a 10K. These courses are mostly downhill with a gentle decent to the finish line. This “new” race carries on its legacy as one of the fastest 10 mile and 5K courses in the Midwest with many people posting their best times. We think you’ll love this race!
