The race begins on Busch Campus at the state of the art Werblin Recreation Center where a marching band and cheerleaders will lead you out on the start.
The first mile will take you past Yurcak Field (soccer and lacrosse) as well as the newly renovated Rutgers Stadium (football).
The next mile and a half will wind through parts of the Busch Campus before making your way over to the Livingston Campus for a loop around the RAC (Rutgers Athletic Center, basketball), the baseball complex and the Bauer Track and Field Complex.
Its back through the Busch Campus for miles 5-7 where you will run past beautiful academic buildings, the Rutgers Golf Course, through the start line crowd and once again past Rutgers Stadium.
Miles 7-11 will take you into Johnson Park where you will run past East Jersey Old Town Village and natural beauty all the while along the banks of the Raritan River.
Next its time to cross to the other side of the river and onto the College Avenue Campus. You will cross the Landing
Lane bridge, take in the band on the Gazebo at Buccleugh Park and past the College Avenue Gym (the site of the very first inter-collegiate football gameRutgers defeated Princeton 6-4 in 1869).
Save that last bit of sprint energy because this finish is what you will truly never forget as your friends and family cheer you down College Avenue amid thousands of spectators, music and fanfare and of course to finish.
