Awesome, Mig and Gypsy! 11km is a doable distance for everyone, even if you hate running. I had a couple of friends do the 11km last year and they were, what I consider "not runners", and they finished in 1:15 and 1:30.

The 11km course has a short uphill at the beginning of the race and then a short downhill and then goes flat for the rest of the race. Basically, you start in the parking lot across from the Lawson and start running left around the lake until you get to the bridge. Then, you take a left and start climbing up street all the way to Route 139 (the road with Bell shopping center & Off-House). At the 139, you spin around and start coming back down the same street. Then you take a left when you get to Gustos and run a couple km and then take a right and start your final descent down towards the lake. Once you hit the lake, the rest of the course is flat. You take a right at the lake and hug it all the way back to the finish line.

The 27km I did last year. It has the same course as the 11km, except where the 11kmers take a right to go back to the finish, the 27kmers go across thr bridge and start running around the whole lake. I'm not what you would consider a fast runner. My time last year was 2:55.
