Cape Spear, the start, is at the top of the map. The finish, at Cabot Tower on top of Signal Hill, is at the middle on the left.

The race runs from the Cape Spear National Historic Site parking lot, along the Cape, and climbs to the height of land between the Cape and the village of Blackhead.

After leaving Blackhead, the race heads in a southerly direction climbing to the ridge before Freshwater Bay. Leaving Freshwater Bay, there is a long climb to the highest point in the race atop the Southside Hills.

Racing through the community of Shea Heights, you descend to sea level and run to the base of Signal Hill along the historic St. John’s waterfront.

Then all you have left is the climb to Cabot Tower!
