The 0.8-mile climb is a fast but deceptive 5 corner criterium. Starting on Penn Ave and 6th street, the course heads into a 60° turn 1 on Tulpehocken Street. Turns 2 and 3 are part of a quick chicane through the round about on 5th. The back stretch rips up a false flat cresting around Walnut Street before descending into turn 4. Turn 5 comes quickly into a slight downhill. But the finish is not downhill. At 7th, Penn Ave kicks back up forcing anyone contesting the finish to be savvy and patient.
