Great News! The city of Polson recently completed a pedestrian walkway under the Hwy 93 bridge that will allow us to send runners on a spectacular new one-mile lakefront loop around Salish Point to start the 10k run course. Hopefully all participants will be truly inspired and energized given the close proximity of cheering spectators and crystal clear waters.
After returning under the bridge to Riverside Park, runners will tackle the stairs, pass the finish line and continue through a town loop similar to the last two years. To make up for the added distance, we will be removing the grass soccer field loop and possibly a few short sections in the Polson neighborhoods. Don’t worry, you still get to do the big hill above the high school that you love to hate.
I will try to get a map of the new run course posted soon and we will have one available at race check-in.
