Course Description: Both Stanley Park races courses are a steady mix of field surfaces and trails. In the 8k, about 2 miles of the course is on a flat field surface and 3 miles of the course is on fairly well packed walking trails. The trails section includes two loops of downhill section (about 300 meters in length) and two loops of an uphill section (about 300 meters in length). The finish is an open 800 meters of field.

In the 5k, about 1 mile of the course is on a flat field surface and 2 miles of the course is on fairly well packed walking trails. The trails section includes a downhill section (about 300 meters in length) run once and the resulting uphill section (about 300 meters in length) run once. The finish is an open 800 meters of field.

Restrooms: WMDP will be providing Porta-Potties to supplement limited park restrooms. The Park asks that we aim to keep the restrooms open to Park goers and use the Porta-Potties provided for the event.

Additional Notes: There is plenty of field space available for teams to set up “camp”. There is room for canopies and EZ-ups if a team chooses to bring such items. There are no showers on site. We ask that runners please acknowledge the youth soccer games taking place and avoid warming up and cooling down over the outlined soccer fields.
