Our course caters to runners, walkers, and pet/human teams who will all participating together on the same course. The course loops through the South Williamsport Community Park and Little League International’s baseball stadiums. Both the 2.5 and 5 mile run contain a short but steep climb up and around Little League International’s Headquarters and back down for an unforgettable view of that makes the climb all worthwhile. What would a dog-friendly event be without a division for dogs participating with their humans? The course offers water stations for humans and dogs and dog waste disposal receptacles along the course.

The 2.5-Mile course follows the white line around the Park and up around the top of Little League. At the 2.5 & 5 - split point, the 2.5-mile participants take a right turn into the Park and follow the turquoise line down the finishing stretch.
The 5-Mile course begins by following the white line around the Park and up around the top of Little League. At the 2.5 & 5 - split point, the 5-mile participants go straight following the red line for an out and back on the bike path. The turn around point on the bike path is just after the bike path crosses under the Market Street Bridge. After completing the out and back on the bike path, 5 mile participants take a left turn into the Park following the turquoise line down the finishing stretch (same finishing stretch used by the 2.5-mile participants)
The beginning of the course for both the 2.5-mile and 5-mile participants is a combination of paved areas and areas of short-trimmed grass paths giving sections of the course a "cross-country" feel. The starting line is wide which allows participants to spread out across the starting area. Once the course reaches the Little League park, the course climbs up to the top of the stadiums, crosses through a parking lot, and returns down the other side all on paved roadways.
Water stations and restrooms
Water stations for people and animals will be provided at the start/finish line, half way up the Little League hill climb, and where the 5-mile course crosses Sylvan Del. Porta-potties are at the start/finish line and rest rooms are available at the first water stop on Little League hill. Dog waste disposal receptacles will be available at each water station.
