    PARKING: There isn't a large parking lot, so we recommend you get there early as you may have to park and walk. We recommend finding a spot on the street. We also have permission from the following local businesses to use their parking spaces - Dewey's Pizza, Clayton Cleaners and Royal Bank (just don't block the ATM). ROUTE/COURSE: If you want to run less than 10 miles (or between 10-15 miles) simply turn back on the Greenway Trail earlier than Olive.
