All races start and end on the Martin Goodman Trail – at the foot of Lee Avenue near beautiful Kew gardens. From there the three races will follow approximately the same routes via the Martin Goodman Trail. All 3 races have access to water stations and the 10k and half marathon have access to porta potties.
All routes: Head west on the Boardwalk/Martin Goodman Trail
