170 Chestnut St

See below--the Map My Run link. The 15k is three loops of the 5k course. 

*The map was a little confused about the exact layout of the Amherst Middle School! The course will be clearly marked and route will be briefly explained before the start. Runners will start and end at the same place in the parking lot and the distance will be slightly over 3.11 miles per loop. 

Professional timing provided by 4RUN3. 

There will be one water stop on course. For the 5k race they will run by once and for the 15k once per loop.
