The course goes through Fulton, across Gillies Creek Park, up Libby hill by way of a stair set and cobblestone paths, through church hill to a trail along the James River, up another grueling stair set, through Rocketts Landing, then up the steep Powhatan hill where at the summit you face another 2 kilometers of running through historic Fulton before you reach the finish line.
