About This Event

Create a new downtown Holiday tradition.

Start on Wayne Street near Clay on the east side of downtown, then head east before turning on Coombs Street and running across the historic Tecumseh Street bridge. Then run west along the Rivergreenway and the site of Harmar's Defeat of 1790. Then cross Columbia and continue along the Greenway to the Tennessee Avenue bridge.

Runners will then run back downtown along the Greenway, past the confluence, past the Old Fort, and along the St. Mary's River, turning south on Harrison Street to cross the old Lincoln Highway bridge before finishing downtown.

Runners will enjoy gingerbread cupcakes, cookies, and hot cider in the beautiful Art Deco vaulted lobby of Tower Bank.

Runners will help promote the Gingerbread Festival at The History Center and will get a free entry to the Festival after the race. It is amazing to see all the Gingerbread structures created for this Holiday tradition.

Please try to arrive early on race morning to ensure you have plenty of time to park. There are many parking opportunities downtown. You may wish to park off Berry Street between Clay and Clinton Street. The finish site will be between the Courthouse and Tower Bank. So, you may wish to park near the finish line at the Citizens Square lot or one of many other parking places downtown. We do ask that you keep the Cinema Center lot clear across Clay from the packet pick up site. Dance Collective members will be using that lot for a program immediately following the start of the Gingerbread Pursuit.
