Gary Eakin Park 6/29 - 7/5

Week Five of the Summer Fun Run Series takes us to Gary Eakin Park in Danville, Indiana.  The fun run route is a 3.052 mile out and back first travels on the path around the park.  Then there is a brief section of the route that runs along CR 50 N (There is a wide path to run on) and continues behind sports recreation fields and across a bridge into Ellis Park.  You will reach the turn around at the trail head and return to the start to complete the route.  Follow the red and blue SFR signs with directional arrows to guide you along the route in addition to the map on this page.

After the warmup try to end up around the base of the big hill on CR 50N. The mile 1, and mile 2 (after going out to the end of the route) are both near the base of the hill which is the start/end point of the workout. Be sure to pump those arms and drive those knees-hill running done right builds strength and can drastically improve form! More hills to come later in the summer series!
