CourseExperience the inaugural Marine Corps Historic 10K, beginning the 6.2 mile journey in the heart of Fredericksburg's historic neighborhood district at Maury Street and Fall Hill Avenue. The Historic 10K will start near the Quarles Petroleum Inc., parking lot located at 1701 Fall Hill Avenue in Fredericksburg, VA. Shuttles will transport runners from the Central Park Walmart to the Quarles Petroleum lot on event morning. The initial portion of the course runs along the picturesque Prince Edward Street, lined with stately homes, and turns left onto William Street, where runners will enter downtown viewing historic architecture, restaurants, boutiques and galleries. Historic 10K runners will follow William Street to Princess Anne, adorned with significant buildings and museums, and beautiful churches with their grand steeples.
Runners will deviate from the Historic Half course for just two blocks along Mile 1, as they turn left onto Hanover Street, known for its Irish pub and colorful flags, (situated in the 1920 Hotel Maury). 10K runners then rejoin the Historic Half course as they turn left onto Caroline Street, where shop windows are dressed for spring.
At the beginning of Mile 2, 10K runners travel to Amelia Street, turn right and run against the traffic pattern, then turn left onto Sophia Street passing the back of the Central Rappahannock Regional Library and follow Sophia bearing around the curve as the road becomes Pitt Street. Runners turn right again onto Caroline Street moving parallel to scenic Old Mill Park, and continue into Mile 3 as Caroline becomes Riverside Drive, discovering an impressive view of the Rappahannock River. At the end of Riverside Drive, runners turn left into the Fall Hill Avenue neighborhood and then turn right onto Route 1, heading south and remaining with the traffic pattern as they traverse the course along Mile 4.
From Rt. 1, runners turn right onto Mary Washington Boulevard traveling along the road as it turns left taking them up onto the vigorous challenge of Hospital Hill. At the top of Hospital Hill, runners meet the beginning of Mile 5 while turning right onto Care Way Drive toward the traffic circle. They continue right at Hospital Drive, remaining with the traffic pattern.
The Historic 10K course then turns right onto Cowan Boulevard, running over the Route 95 expressway and to the completion of Mile 5. Runners then pass under the stunning aerial display of the American flag, guiding them into Central Park. 10K runners will turn right onto Carl D. Silver Parkway with spectators cheering them across Fall Hill Avenue, while continuing to run the final portion of the course to the Historic 10K finish!
