Holly Springs Half Marathon presented by Edward Jones: Whether you are a seasoned runner or hoping to complete your first half marathon, you’ll absolutely love this course. It offers a little bit of everything…from fast flats to rolling hills…from open roads to greenways and trails, the Holly Springs Half Marathon will introduce runners to the best our town has to offer.
Starting from the Holly a Springs Salamanders’ baseball stadium located at the brand new North Main Athletic Complex, runners will begin their journey through the quaint neighborhood of Windcrest. From there, the crowd will filter into the fast canopy-covered greenway, trail running through both Jones and Veterans parks. Runners will continue downtown on Main Street by town hall before jumping back on the Womble Park trail on their way to Sugg Farm and eventually to the Bass Lake Park entrance. There will be no time to stop to feed the ducks, while you run 2 miles around Bass Lake’s mulch trail before jumping back onto a fast greenway which wraps you back around to Womble Park. From there runners will take the opposite side of the loop around Womble Park, backtracking down Main Street, Veterans and Jones parks, and eventually finishing on a gentle downhill back towards the Salamanders’ stadium.
