The route includes National Cemetery and Yowell Meadow Park. Many restaurants near the start/finish make this an excellent choice for a walk, then lunch. There is an “A” award for this event, which is a 3.75”x5” patch. Rated 2A (medium hills, mostly on pavement; probably suitable for strollers but not for wheelchairs).
