Day-of registration: Field Memorial Library starting around 8:30 and ending at 9:40.

Parking: Turn north off 116 at Elm street. Parking is on the left, Watch for signs.

Routes: Both the 10 K Race and the Kid’s 1.7 Mile Race begin at Conway’s historic Burkeville Covered Bridge, just west of the town center. Registration and the finish line are at the Field Memorial Library in the town center. Plan to complete your registration at least 20 minutes before the start of the race to leave time to comfortably travel the one mile to the starting line.

All racers begin at the covered bridge and briefly head east along Route 116. They turn up Ives Road, turn onto Delabarre Avenue and over Baptist Hill, heading down Cemetery Hill Road, and crossing the South River onto Reed’s Bridge. After crossing the bridge, the kid’s mile race turns right onto Elm Street and proceeds to the finish line at the Field Memorial Library. After crossing the bridge, 10 K racers turn left and head north on Reed’s Bridge Road through hilly terrain, loop nover the Truce Road hill and rejoin Reed’s Bridge Road, then follow Elm Street to the finish line at Field Memorial Library. Much of the route along Reed’s Bridge Road is a scenic unpaved gravel road.
