    New venue this year for this popular race in Nashua. Gone are the days of fighting traffic downtown. The course is a street course, laid out around Rivier College on south Main street.

    10K: Two 5K loops; the first one is south of the campus and the second north.

    5K: Same as the first 5K of the 10K course. This is the course that I ran. It starts out heading south on Main street for almost a mile and a half of downhill runnning, then takes a mostly uphill serpentine route back to the start through some of the neighborhood just south of the college campus and the Nashua Golf club.

    3K Walk: down and back on Main street.

    There is also a Kid's run, run prior to the start of the 10K in which all of the kids wear #1 and is always a crowd pleaser.

    The 10K and 5K are USATF-certified courses.

    This race is one of the shelter's largest fund raisers.
