“A Hobart 4th of July Tradition”

Two blocks after turning right again onto Hobart Rd and heading north, you will find Mile Marker #3.  Water Station # 3 is at the 3.3 mile point. Hobart Rd. takes runners back to 10th Street, where runners will turn right negotiate another downhill and then uphill challenge and then find Mile Marker #4 and Water Station #4.  After the mile marker it is back to Union Street again and the last leg south on Union to the far entrance to the HHS complex, around the baseball and football fields heading for the home stretch and finish line at the NW corner of the football stadium.   5K COURSEThis is our second year of the 5k addition to the Brickyard Run. The 5 K course offers those runners not quite comfortable with competing at a 5 mile distance the option to compete on their level. The 5 K course starts just outside the registration/check-in area.  At the horn, runners will head east to Union St., take a left on Union heading to 10th St. (KEEP IN THE LEFT LANES OF UNION ST. AS THE COURSE TURNS WEST (LEFT) ON 10TH St).  Take 10th St. west to Springdale Dr., turn north (right) on Springdale to Luther Dr., south (left) on Luther Dr. back to 10th St..  There will be a Water Station at the 1.4 mile point in front of Trinity Lutheran Church. Take 10th St. east back to Union St., then south (right) on Union St. south to the road immediately past the baseball and football stadiums.  Turn right on the road that runs along the south side of the stadiums to the finish line on the west side of the football stadium.  DIRECTIONS TO RACEFrom the west; take I-94 east to I-65 south, I-65 south to Ridge Rd east, Ridge Rd east to County Line Rd, County Line Rd south to 10th St, 10th St west to high school; From the east; take I-94 west to Rt 51 south, Rt 51 south to Rt 130 east, Rt 130 east to County Line Rd, County Line Rd south to 10th St, 10th St west to high school;  From Rt 30; Take Rt 51 north into Hobart, at the intersection of 10th St & Lincoln St, continue going east on 10th St to high school on right.  Google Maps Direction Address - Hobart High School, 2211 East Tenth Street, Hobart, Indiana, 46342. Race Director, Dale Polomchak at the Hobart YMCA, (219) 942-2183 or by e-mail at DIVISIONS0-8, 9-11, 12-14, 15-18, 19-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80 & over, Masters Division (40 & over)AWARDSTrademark “Bricks” will be awarded to the top three male and female finishers in each age group; Male and Female “Masters” will receive a Brick and trophy; Overall Male and Female winners in each race will receive a Brick, trophy and a $50 gift certificate.START / FINISH LINE & RACE RESULTSComputerized “On the Bib” timing tag by T & H Timing will be used to increase accuracy and speed of results with less hassle to race participants.RACE DIRECTOR CONTACTRace Director, Dale Polomchak at the Hobart YMCA, (219) 942-2183 Ext. 13 or by e-mail at YOU TO OUR SPONSORS!Presenting SponsorGold SponsorsSilver SponsorsRees Funeral Home Ginter Realty Hobart Animal Clinic
