The run course starts in picturesque Riverside Park, goes by the Bergstrom Museum and then to the scenic shoreline of Lake Winnebago on Lakeshore Ave. It continues around Kimberly Point and re-enters onto the Riverside Park trails overlooking the water channel and downtown Neenah.
Starting at Riverside Park, course heads south on Park Ave., to Hwy A and then west (Hwy G) on well paved, flat and fast country roads. It heads south on Pendelton and then west out to Rhyner Rd. and then back on Cty G. Then back through residential area of Neenah and back to the park.
