Course Info

The course will start and finish on McKinney Ave. in between the event area and the Denton Civic Center. Participants will first head north to the beautiful TWU campus passing the Old Main Building and the Little Chapel in the Woods. You will then head south to the historic Denton Squares were you will make a complete lap before heading back to the finish line on McKinney Ave. If you haven’t been to Denton in a while this will give you an up close view of all of the great changes over the past few years as this is the only run that goes around the square.
