As you can see, the race starts at Spirit Square in downtown Campbell River, then the route is along a few city streets and over to the bottom of the ERT (Elk River Timber) trail where runners steadily climb uphill and across Evergreen Rd to a more level grade. For our relay teams, your second runner will be waiting in the transition area between Evergreen and Trask Rd, and the race continues on into the Beaver Lodge Lands on the Rail Trail. The mid-point turnaround brings runners back down the same route with the third relay runner waiting in the same location as the transition from first to second runner. Then down the ERT, onto the streets of downtown Campbell River, and finishing up in Spirit Square! The uphill, trail, road, and downhill keep it interesting for the 15km runners, and allows the relay teams to position each runner according to his/her strengths.
There will be plenty of volunteers along the way to help keep runners on the right track, and to give out water at the relay transition area (more on Frogger 15 volunteers in another post). I encourage you to check out the route, and if you have a Frogger 15 shirt from 2013 or 2014, wear it on your run to help us spread the word. And if you see me out running in my orange 2014 Frogger 15 shirt, feel free to wave, smile, say hello, or stop me to chat!
Happy #running☺ #Frogger15
