Course Description

New Course at I-79 Technology Park
Our beautiful loop course takes you on a tour of some of the most innovative companies in WV! Beginning at the Technology Training Center, all racers will complete a single, 2 mile, loop of the Tech Park - with 5K runners completing a second loop of the lower section of the course.

From the Technology Training Center, racers will turn right onto NASA Blvd, passing in front of the Alan B. Mollohan Innovation Center.  At the entrance of the First Energy campus, you will turn right, running an out-and-back through the Technology Towers and past the inter-planetary landscape monument on the backside of the towers.  From here, you will briefly re-enter NASA Blvd. before truning left into the NASA IV & V complex.  Turning left onto Galliher Drive you enter the upper (hilly) section of the course.  Just past the massive NOAA satellite dishes, turn left to the Robert H. Mollahan Research Center and around the iconic Observation Tower.  You'll return to Galligher drive and past Pierpont's new Advanced Technology Center before turning Right onto NASA Blvd.  After a well deserved downhill, walkers turn right to finish on Technology Drive, runners will continue on NASA Blvd. repreating the lower section of the course.  After the second tour of NASA IV & V, runners will circle in front of the Alan B. Mollahan Innovation Center before rejoining the walkers on a sprint to the finish at the Technology Training Center!
