Frightening 5K, Terrible 10K, Haunted Hilly Half Marathon, Monster Mile

Boo Ha Ha! ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!!!! Some people try to blend in by wearing costumes!

This is a fundraiser for the Elkhart County Down Syndrome Support Group! Thank you for your participation.

If you like running country roads (the running courses are paved) and enjoy rollers, this one if for you. This is held at a charming county park in Bristol, Indiana. The course is lined with old-growth trees, horse farms and open space.

All courses start and end at Bonneyville Mill in Bristol, IN. Where is Bristol? In Northern Indiana, this park is just about 5 miles from the 80 Tollroad exit 101.

Monster Mile course will be staffed by the Boy Scouts again this year! This is a lovely path through the woods on a trail that passes by one of the most photographed creek areas in the area! The charming park is often the site for wedding and high school photos.

The 5K course (3.1 miles) is an out and back PAVED course from Bonneyville Mill up a grade to LoveWay riding stables and then back. Runners are always happy to see that turnaround point for the downhill grade to the finish line! Follow GREEN signs and turnaround just past the LoveWay riding stables. Out and back.

The 10K course (6.2 Miles) gives you plenty of hills for the buck. Not your Nanna’s 10K. Paved course, entirely on roads. Follow PINK arrows. Starts together with 5K, but they turn back sooner. 🙂 Out and back course.

Half Marathoners- You’ve basically got a 3-mile warm-up into the rollers. Then a nice downhill grade over to Middlebury where you can hammer out some quick splits. Do save some for the end because the race starts around mile 10 where you start heading back up and over those hills you have been winding down. Three good climbs. Then a good downhill after mile 12 to bring it on home! When you finish this one, you will feel like you got a good workout! This course is on paved, country roads. This is not a trial run. Follow YELLOW arrows. Plan to complete the half marathon by noon.

note for 2019: half marathon course subject to change to avoid traffic.
