Out and Back 8k Course

Start: Top of the South Street Bridge (SSB)

Finish: Below South Street Bridge (SSB) on lower portion of bridge, just as you cross under the bottom of the bridge (not up the broadwalk)

Overall Course Description: Starting at the SSB you will be run down onto the boardwalk, continuing on to the Schuylkill River Trail. Continue on the trail for approximately 2km coming to Philadelphia Water Works where the trail splits, go left continuing on the trail so not to have to cross any roads with traffic lights. Continue onto Kelly Drive, approximately another 2km to the Girard Bridge. The Bridge marks the turn-around point where the non-paved dirt area is on runner's right-hand side. Head straight back the way you came, staying on the trail, ending at the finish line just below the SSB.
