  The Route is predominately Cement and Asphalt Roadway or Wide Path. There is a short section of sidewalk towards the end of the race. The route is predominately flat with a few small hills along the way. The net gain is 66 feet. After an initial slope the route levels out until runners begin a run down from the top of Kanawha hill. There is a small incline just before turning on to Main Street at the Court House. The Race then begins what is predominately flat run until the finish, with a small decent toward the end of main street.

     The moderately flat route was designed to showcase the awesomeness of Buckhannon WV.
