Course Description: 

blueberry.oompagroupMeet at the front of the Ashland Hills Hotel. Some Oompa Loompas will direct you to the start of the race.

The course will wind through hotel grounds, then down to East Main St from a hotel maintenance road. It will head up E. Main and turn back around at Tolman Creek Rd.  Head back on East Main towards Ashland St., then turn around back on E. Main and right on up the maintenance road to the hotel. Then we’ll do one victory lap around the hotel to the finish line!

We look forward to seeing you at both events on Sunday, March 11th!
