The course will start up the Parkway before taking the running path alongside Valley View Road. A quick stint in Valley View golf course takes runners into Roscoe Conkling Park to run the switchbacks in reverse direction. The course comes back onto the golf course for one last hill before entering the top entrance to the Utica Zoo. Runners will race down African Alley and out the main gate of the Zoo before heading down the Memorial Parkway to the finish.
Through the Utica Zoo!
