Half-Marathon Course

The 10K and half-marathon runners will run the same course for the first 6 miles, then the half-marathoners run out to complete ONE loop of the McHenry Dam trail, an out and back on the River Road bike trail, and on to finish at Northern Woods

As always, there will be abundant signage, a leader bike for the the whole 13.1 miles and knowledgeable course marshals to direct you at all key intersections and turns.

There will be a brief course talk at 8 AM on Race Day at the Northern Woods site shelter.

If you have any questions, please contact the Race Director.
