30 June Long Run

Beavercreek: 0545 Start, Beavercreek Community Park (Factory Road) Bike Path Trailhead (Across from 849 Factory Road)

Distance: 10 miles

Pace: 7 to 7:30 min/mile

Leader: Andy

Bathrooms: Limited. Single stall male and female. Clean running water.

Pros: Nice part of the bike path and is easy to access from US-35 and Factory Road.  Catch the sunrise over Dayton on this early morning run.

Tip: Don’t miss the turn.  The park is not well marked and doesn’t have an address in Google Maps.  Head north from US-35 on Factory Road and turn right quickly.  Parking is right near the bike path.
