The Courses

Walking or running, these routes are an awesome way to spend a morning!

The 5K Course

The course starts on Bank Street at Califon Island Park and heads south, back towards Mill Street, where participants turn right.

Do a quick zig zag across historic Main Street onto River Road. Continue east along River Road.

Turn left onto the short path to the Columbia Trail (look for the firefighter mailbox and course marshal) and left onto the Columbia Trail.

The trail takes a little break as you enter back into downtown Califon. You'll exit the trail onto Railroad Ave. and cross Academy and Main St. before reentering the trail. Course Marshals will guide you through the intersections.

 

Continue back onto the Columbia Trail., staying on the right side.

A water stop is just before Mile 2.

 

Turn around on the Columbia Trail at Mile 2 and a half-ish.  Stay on the Columbia Trail as you head back towards Califon. Keep right on the trail.

Take a quick right and left as you cut over back onto Vernoy Road using the dirt path connector.

 

Continue along Vernoy Road as it turns into Bank Street and back to the finish line at Califon Island Park.

All roads are open to traffic. Please keep to the left when on roads and right when on the trail.
