About This Activity

This race precedes the 65th annual Roswell Youth Day Parade.  It begins on Mimosa Blvd. in the Roswell Historic District, near the front of the Roswell United Methodist Church (814 Mimosa, Roswell, GA).  The race runs along Canton St., turns left on Woodstock, then enters Roswell Area Park where it shifts onto the trail, finishing on the path by the football field in the park.  This course is fairly flat with only 2 very short hills (in the park) and is very scenic.
