5K & KIDS' FUN RUN COURSE MAP
Both races will run throughout the North Cross School campus. Race Marshals, Public Safety, and NCS PA members will be along the course and at intersections to guide you along both the race path.
Check out our Training page for lots of tips to get prepared!
5K COURSE DIRECTIONS
Coach Dickenson, his sons, and U.S. Lawns created a new streamlined NCS Cross Country Course for the Take the Hill 5K. It is every athlete's responsibility to know the course. Stay focused, and do not let a spectator, another participant, or a marshal decide your race for you!

KIDS' FUN RUN COURSE DIRECTIONS
The Fun Run will start and finish at the same starting line as the 5K and loop the Fishwick Tennis Center Hill. The course is 0.8 miles. An NCS Cross Country Runner will lead the kids. We will also have some NCS Cross Country Runners in the back, ensuring no kids are left behind!
1. From the starting line, the kids will follow the cross country runners on a gentle loop around Red Barn Field.
2. They will cross the paved campus road and run uphill around Fishwick Tennis Center and back down the hill.
3. They’ll cross the paved campus road again and head back toward Red Barn Field.
4. They will run the final gentle loop around Red Barn Field and finish where they started!
