COURSE INFORMATION:

 

10K RUN: The 10k course begins in the Diamond and stays in the Borough of Hollidaysburg. The run takes off down Allegheny St and returns on Walnut St through Historic Hollidaysburg and continues around Legion Park, High School, Tiger Stadium, and the Junior High before going up over Union St and turning at the Blair County Courthouse to return to the Diamond, a true tour of the Borough!

Nice early 8:00 am start, temps were cool. Perfect for running. A couple of challenging grades at the beginning and end. Field was thin but the race was well organized. Good tunes and snacks afterward. Had a great time.
