Course:

Half Marathon:
The half marathon course starts and finishes at the NewBo Market. Participants will run up 12th Ave and make a right on 15th Ave/Otis Road by Metro High School. You’ll continue on Otis Road which parallels the Cedar River. Around 1.6 miles, you’ll enter into Prairie Park Fishery. Around 2.3 miles, you’ll come to the first water station in the parking lot. From here you’ll continue onto the paved trail and head around the lake clockwise (stay to the left). Just before the 3 mile marker, you’ll keep left and head out of Prairie Park via a connector trail to Cole St/Fir Ave. There is a water station before you turn left and make your way up the Cole St hill. Don’t worry, it’s short!

At the top of Cole St, you’ll take a right on Otis Road and the next 3 miles are rolling hills with one water station at the intersection of 44th St. (mile 4.7). Continue straight and near the Indian Creek Nature Center you’ll come to another water station at mile 5.8. From here, you’ll turn left onto Bertram Road and go over an old blue bridge. Just pass the bridge is a parking lot and also the halfway point.

This is where you’ll hop on the Sac and Fox Trail. The Sac and Fox Trail is one of the most enjoyable sections of the race with crushed limestone and the majority of it is shaded from the sun. You’ll continue on the trail from miles 6.5 through 10 with an GU energy gel stop/ water station at mile 7.0 and another water station at mile 8.4.

At the end of the Sac and Fox Trail, you’ll come upon the connector trail again and head back into Prairie Park after the mile 10 water station. The parking lot will have the same water station which is the last one. From the parking lot, you’ll retrace your way back out of Prairie Park to Otis Road. From there it’s a sprint back to the NewBo Market and the post race party!

From here you’ll continue onto the paved trail and head around the lake clockwise (stay to the left). You’ll continue all the way around the lake before coming back to the parking lot and the same water station. From the parking lot, you’ll retrace your way back out of Prairie Park to Otis Road. From there it’s a sprint back to the NewBo Market and the post race party!
