The 5k Race starts on a light incline for the first half mile. It then flattens out for the rest of the mile (mile 1 is near the corner of Oswego St.). The start of the second mile inclines slightly and finishes flat. The remaining 1.1 mile is pretty much the first mile in reverse. See USATF map

Mile two continues up a slight incline and starts up a slightly tougher incline up the Parkway. Mile three works it’s way up Valley View and into the park. The next three miles are the scenic but challenging switchbacks and park roads. The next mile is mostly downhill.
