The course is a moderate level course, travelling along the beautiful Clear creek path, heading West toward downtown Golden. Runners pass through Vanover Park, home to a large goose colony, and then cross over on a wooden bridge with gorgeous views to South Table and the foothiils. The Course continues west on the trail, passing through Parfet Park, past the Golden Hotel, the Golden History Park, School of Mines, Golden Library, Golden History Museum, Golden Fire Department, Golden Visitor Center, and then back to the finish line & the Goosetown Fall Festival, at 9th & East Streets.
