Pretty Good Race Directions

Getting There: The race starts and finishes on the trail under the Panther Hollow Bridge. The start can be reached either via the steps that begin at the drinking fountain to the left of the Schenley Park Visitors' Center or the adjoining cobblestone driveway. The cobblestone driveway takes you under the bridge. Once you go down the first few steps next to the drinking fountain, you land on the cobblestone driveway and bearing right onto the cobblestone driveway takes you to the trailhead under the bridge. The steps, if followed to the bottom, put you on the trail - from there go to the right up the trail to reach the bridge. The Visitor's Center is at the CMU end of of the Panther Hollow Bridge across the street from Phipps Conservatory.

The Course: Run down the hill and curve to the right, then left up the long hill until you reach a bridge that crosses the ravine. This bridge curves to the right, then a short left up to a parklet. Don't make the left into the parklet. Instead, make the sharp right turn downhill onto the trail that goes along the ridge. Follow this more or less down hill until you go under Panther Hollow Bridge again, climb up to a point just about level to the playground (on your left). Go just a liitle further as the trail just starts downhill - that is the turnaround point. Retrace your steps to the start. Note that you never cross a road.
