Starting at the Road Runner Running Store, this route is a loop around Maymont.
This moderately hilly 4.5 mile loop first heads east on Carey, and then south on Boulevard towards the Downtown Expressway. After passing Byrd Park, you’ll take a left on Lakeview Avenue and run by Fountain Lake. You’ll turn onto Swan Lake Drive and pass the mile marker. The run loops around Swan Lake on Shields Lake Ct. before heading south on Hampton, towards Maymont. As the road reaches a dead-end, you’ll hop onto the North Bank Trail and enjoy some softer terrain for a bit. As you reach the end of the trail at Pump House Drive, you’ll also pass the 3 mile marker. From here, the run heads north on Rugby Drive, passing VITA Trail and Byrd Park near the 4 mile marker. You’ll dip under the Downtown Expressway once again in the final quarter mile, ending back at the Road Runner Running Store.
