About the Run
Create a new family Thanksgiving tradition. Start from the campus of the University of St. Francis, then run approximately .5 mile to the entrance of the beautiful and historic Lindenwood Cemetery. Most of the race then takes place on the winding, wooded hills of the cemetery before exiting the cemetery and heading back to the start. Showers are available on campus; please bring your own towel.
