Course Description

The 10K Walk is a looped course, starting at the Confederation Centre on Grafton Street and finishing at the corner of Great George Street and Grafton Street. Participants will pass through, Victoria Park following the Park Road along Charlottetown Harbour. After leaving Victoria Park, participants continue onto Queen Elizabeth Drive and follow the shore of the North River through the distinguished Charlottetown neighbourhood of Brighton. The route continues through residential neighbourhoods until meeting up to Belvedere Avenue. The route then takes runners along Belvedere Avenue and up to the University of Prince Edward Island where participants will loop around the campus on the ring road and see the Atlantic Veterinary College and the new Faculty of Sustainable Design Engineering building. The route leaves the University by the Bell Aliant Centre turning on to University Avenue to head straight for the Finish in front of the cenotaph and historic Province House.
