Like many of the runners in the race, Minor was surprised to learn that the course was longer than the posted 5K. "I passed three miles in 15:15, which is 5:05 pace," said Minor. "And then I was 17:02 at the finish, which would be a lot slower." The course was variously described as 3.26, 3.27, and 3.3 miles long, all of which are significantly farther than 5 kilometers, which would be 3.11 miles. Most of the course was on the Tom Brown Park section of the Goose Pond Trail, a ten-foot wide paved multi-use trail.
There were 164 recorded finishers in the race.
