Starting at Hardin Valley Elementary School the route will take you down Hardin Valley Road before you turn left on to the campus of Pellissippi State Community College where you will follow Course Monitors and signage to the half-way mark. There you will either make the turn back to Hardin Valley Elementary and cross the FINISH LINE to complete the 5K, or if you are a Donut 5K Competitor, you will stop and eat 12 Dunkin’ Donuts Glazed Munchkins. As soon as you have finished your donuts and checked out with the judges, you will continue back to Hardin Valley Elementary to cross the FINISH LINE.
