The 5k route is an out-and-back race that starts at the Plaza on St. Patrick's Island. The 5k runners will run west until they reach the new St. Patrick's Island Bridge. After getting onto the new St. Patrick's Island Bridge, the 5k runners will turn left, and run south along the bridge, toward the East Village. Upon exiting the new St. Patrick's Island Bridge, the 5k runners will turn right and run west along the Bow River Pathway, on the south side of the river, until they reach the small island bridge located on the southeast corner of Prince's Island. The 5k runners will turn right and run north along the small island bridge. After crossing the small island bridge, the 5k runners will reach their turnaround point. The 5k runners will turn and proceed south back along the small island bridge. The 5k runners will then return to the Plaza on St. Patrick's Island via the same route.
