The race is directed by Bainbridge High School cross-country coach Mandi O'Mara and is a fund-raiser for the BHS cross-country team. The course loops through the neighborhoods south of Bainbridge Memorial Hospital and Manor, and is completely flat after a slight dip in the first half mile. The course appears to be accurate, but lacks USATF certification, so you can't really be sure. The one-mile mark was placed in the wrong location, which was annoying. On the plus side, there were aid stations at each mile and the course was well marked. There is a lot to recommend this race, and nothing wrong with it that can't be easily fixed.
