Runners will walk/jog uphill to the start of the 1 mile race at Transverse Drive, then race downhill to the finish. Start time for the mile is 8:45am so be sure to arrive at least 20 minutes prior to allow enough time to check in and then make your way to the start about a mile away. The 5K will begin immediately after the completion of the 1 mile and will start/finish at JFK & 36th Avenue.
