Course Description: 

The 5K course (map, new certified course for this year) is mostly on a paved bike path through Wheaton Regional Park and Brookside Gardens.  The course begins with a short stretch on the roads, then continues on a scenic loop course winding through the woods, along the lake and around beautiful Brookside Gardens and finishes back in Wheaton Regional Park.
