Nice route through the neighborhoods behind the Primrose Marketplace. Midwest Technical Institute building was the start and finish. A great location right by the start line to duck in and stay warm with restrooms close by. The 10K was two loops. It was marked very well. The sidewalks alternate the side of the road that they are on and that does create a bit of congestion and possible confusion as the runners try to stay off the busy streets. However, I think once the course becomes more familiar to the racers, they will grow to love the event.  Proceeds go to the Springfield Catholic Cross Country Team.Happy running! ~trvw
