Course Map & Parking

Prospect Park may be confusing to some. However, we’ve made the route as simple as possible. There are still five main cross intersections that may be confusing; otherwise always run straight on the main path.

Start Area is on the WEST side of Prospect Park. By Public Transit, take the Metro to 15 St – Prospect Park.

Enter on the left sidewalk from the Entrance near West Dr.
Walk about 50 yards down the sidewalk where you’ll find the Start area and our coordinators.

Follow the Orange signs and Directional Signage!

On the northern tip of the park, runners need to make a hard RIGHT when West Dr. become East Dr.

Intersection of Lake Dr. and East Dr. is 4-way – Go STRAIGHT

Just after East Dr. becomes West Dr. there is a fork at S. Lake Drive – Stay on the RIGHT

West Drive forks at Centre Drive – Go LEFT (don’t go on Centre Drive)

West Dr. splits and comes back together – Stay on the RIGHT
