Bauman-Rovn Hopkins Invite course MAP. ALL athletes and coaches are expected to be aware
of the race course directions. No officials will read times for the mile or k’s. The course is clearly
marked and it is expected that athletes will stay on the course and not cut course cones or
flagging. Coaches, athletes, and spectators may travel to the top (½ mile) loop, however it is
expected that the race course will be clear for the 6 races from 4pm - 7pm. The course is part of
the Three Rivers Park system and was designed specifically as a permanent cross country course.
It is generally viewed by those who have competed here to be a demanding course with rolling
terrain and several very tough hills. It is NOT a very nice spectator course for the parents or
grandparents who may have trouble navigating to the top of the hill where the loop is
located. In this case please advise to watch the start and finish only.
● Designated 1K, 2K, 3K, 4K, plus 1 mile and 2 mile markings are located on the race course.
