These informal training runs meet at Happy Days parking lot off Route-303, which is the 5 and 8 mile mark of the event course.

The main run will follow the Fools Run course starting with PURPLE then ORANGE before arriving at Pine Hollow (start/finish area) where restroom and water is available (about 7 miles.) Then follow the YELLOW leg back to Happy Days. Total 12.5 miles.
To complete the full 25k course (15.7 miles total), add the Boston Run (BLUE).
