RUN (10KM): Qing Long Lake Park
The 10 km run of the race will take place primarily within the beautiful grounds of Qing Long Lake Park. This is a well laid out run course featuring a run path that overlaps and intersects in a manner that allows age groupers to interact with the lead athletes as well as the other participants. You will be able to see world class athletes out ahead setting the pace and setting the bar for you and the rest of the world that wishes they were here too. Participants will run on a variety of surfaces from stone paths to concrete to asphalt to green trails, and over beautiful bridges and stairs that showcase the special architecture of Qing Long Lake Park. A trail running shoe or a sturdy trainer is suggested as a racing flat will not provide the support most athletes will need.
Participants will finish by the Main Gate of the park; it will be a grand finish line with TV cameras rolling and crowds cheering. Each finisher will receive a finisher’s medal, water, a meal, and the opportunity for a trophy should you finish in the top three of your age group. Don’t forget, top finishers in each age group will also earn a spot in the 2014 Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon in San Francisco!
