THE ROUTE: Our primary 5k route is in Point Defiance Park along Five Mile Drive. The start/finish is just behind the gate where the road is closed to traffic until 1 p.m. on weekends. The route winds along the closed road past two scenic overlooks before runners reach a turnaround point at roughly two miles into the run. Runners are then guided onto a fire road trail that rejoins with Five Mile Drive for a rolling downhill and then an uphill sweep toward the finish.

PARKING: Parking is in the upper lot at Owen Beach in Point Defiance Park. As you approach 5 mile drive, take the right fork and head down the hill to Owen Beach. At the parking lot, turn left and head back up the hill. Park in one of the upper lots. Walk to the starting line just a bit further up the hill.

Be sure to get here early enough to park and walk to the start.
