About the course...
Parks and Recreation of Jefferson City have partnered with the JCHS Key Club to develop a unique course that enhances the experience of the participants and capitalizes on the beauty of the Binder Park.
The 5k begins on the south side of the park next to the softball fields at the start of the Frisbee golf course. Participants will head up the hill to the left side and reach the bottom of the RC Flyers Club runway where they will see the Red Station. They will then run across the runway between the old barn and the foundation of an old house to cross the street into the other portion of Binder Park. They will then turn right onto the dirt path that will lead them past the old silo for the Navy Blue station. Then they continue down the hill to cross a stream and encounter the Yellow station.
After being colored like the sun, participants make a slow left turn through a gate and run between a barn and a shelter where they will be hit by the Green Station. From the Green Station the path turns a sharp left up the gravel/dirt road and then will take another sharp turn but to the right through the open field and the path goes left and follows the hill and tree line up where there is a beautiful view of Binder Lake. This path will get participants pounded by the Purple Station.
Now, runners/walkers take the gravel/dirt road up the hill to the Orange Station, where they are directed into the woods through a great trail that leads them to the Pink station in front of the Pavilion that was built by the help of the local Kiwanis International.
The Pink Participants will be led onto another gravel/dirt road through a gate where they will make their way back to where they came from. They will cross the same street they came from, to pass on the lower side of the foundation where the Sky Blue station will be waiting to get them! Then it is a clear shot down the hill to the finish line where the COLOR BATTLE will begin!
