This year the run/walk will take place at the Hidden Valley Wildlife Center in Norco, CA!
Here is the 5k Route: Runners will start in front of the Nature Center and follow the dirt path to the bike path. At the bike path Runners will turn left and go out a short distance (not even a 1/4 of a mile) and do a U-turn on the path. This little jaunt to the East was just to add enough distance to get to the 3.1 mark. Now Runners will be heading west on the bike path for just over a mile (there is a steep down hill and up hill during this segment). Shortly after 1 mile, Runners will be directed by volunteers and course markings to make a right, cross the road, and continue on the bike path now heading towards the Santa Ana River. This loop is your second mile and as Runners make their way back up to the road at then end of the second mile they will encounter a gradual climb. Once arriving back at the bike path Runners will now head back to the Nature Center (the steep down hill and uphill will be repeated with less than 1/2 mile to the finish!), Runners will turn left just after 3 miles and finish back where they started, in front of the Nature Center.
You will now proudly be wearing your medal! Oranges, bananas, Rice Krispy treats, and your very own Riley's Run re-usable water bottle will be available at the finish. Stick around to cheer on the finishers and meander through the vendors that will be set up on the grass areas on either side of the finish line!
