The course for the Tornado 10K race will see the runners start and finish at King College, just a mile and a half east of historic State Street. Runners will exit King College to the north and then run through the Fairmont neighborhood before heading west towards Rotary Park and the Ash Street bridge. The course then heads north on Martin Luther King Boulevard, west on Anderson Street and then picks up the scenic Wes Davis Greenway. The runners will turn on to Melrose Street, proceed north on Martin Luther King Boulevard again, and retrace the first 2.2 miles of the course in reverse before enjoying a nice downhill stretch for the final half-mile on King's campus.

The course is USATF-certified: TN12108MS

At the finish runners will be offered a vast array of refreshments, and can interact with event sponsors.
