ORLANDO, Fla – Universal Orlando released the course maps for its upcoming inaugural “Epic Character" race Friday.

The event will take place at 6:15 a.m. on Feb. 1 and 2 across the entire resort.

By the looks of the map, both races will have runners begin outside the Universal Orlando parking garage near an exit ramp to I-4 and Universal Boulevard.

Runners will cross the finish line somewhere in between the “Jimmy Fallon: Race through New York” and “Mummy” attractions.
