We will meet on the east side of the most eastern parking lot – where the star is (it’s the small lot off Guadalupe. It fills up quick so you may need to park in the big library lot and walk over). We will be running on the canal to the east of the preserve and through the preserve.

1/2 Marathon – October 12th through February 15th
