The 2017 and 40th edition of the TD Bank Reedy River Run 10K will celebrate a few of the interesting course aspects experienced back in 1978. Although much of the route is different now, with the start and finish both on S. Main Street, the route will once again traverse the winding paths along the Reedy River in Cleveland Park.
With this nostalgic, but minor, change, from last year's 10K route runners will need to be aware of a few sharp turns and bridges. In the 7th kilometer runners will turn off of Woodland Way onto Woodland Way Circle. Then almost immediately the course will take a sharp right turn and enter the paved path which runs adjacent to the Reedy. Following the path, the route passes by--but doesn't cross--the "double (parallel) bridges" as it winds along the river. Then there is another sharp right turn as the shaded trail crosses the arched stone bridge heading toward McDaniel Ave. The "under" portion is next as the trail runs beneath McDaniel Ave before another sharp right turn leads onto the "Green Bridge" near the "airplane." Coming off the bridge the route follows the sidewalk from the park onto Ridgeland. From that point there is approximately one kilometer remaining before finishing on the Thomas C. Gower bridge near Falls Park.
