2014 New Course!!!!
Due to a lot of snow we have altered the race route for 2014.
This year’s route is a true “Columbia Avenue Caper”.
Start: 491 Columbia Avenue, Holland MI 49423
1. In front of school on Columbia, run one mile due north, all Columbia (actually 1.05)
2. Do a complete turn around… and run a half mile back on Columbia,
until about the center of Hope College’s campus on Columbia.
3. Volunteers will yell (I hope) 1st time, turn around- and then you
repeat the same half mile, running back on Columbia, North.
4. At this point you are back to where mile one ended… and also mile two ended.
5. Turn completely around, and run (or jog or walk) all the way back to school-
when you pass by Hope’s campus, volunteers should yell “2nd time, run back to school!”

If this is confusing, follow the person in front of you, and never leave Columbia Avenue ?
Medals will be awarded to the top three overall finishers, the top master’s male and female, and three deep in each age division. A mini prize will be awarded to mini-dash participants.
