There will be two water stations on the course. The first water station will be at the end of Linden St. (by the Pentland Hills Dorms). The second water station will be located on the corner of Big Springs Rd. and E. Campus Dr. (in front of the Science Library). The race will end at the same place as the start line. Overall, the course has three good-sized hills with varying inclines and three equally good-sized downhills.
