Corner of Route 156 and South Valmeyer Avenue
The race starts at the corner of Route 156 and South Valmeyer Avenue, at an elevation of about 846 feet above sea level.
From there, the course takes runners southward along Route C and Deer Hill Road, with a number of turns along the way. When it reaches Madonnaville at KK Road, the course turns westward and heads toward Monroe City.
After Monroe City, the course begins a long, steady descent toward its lowest elevation as it runs along the Mississippi River bottoms areas along the edge of the hills, turning northward off KK Road onto Bluff Road. The next four miles are all northward along Bluff Road, toward the turn at Mitchell & Main Street, where the course begins its final — and steepest — hilly stretch over the last two miles to the finish line.
