Runners start and finish the out-and-back course for the half marathon at Madison’s Capital Square, and from there head out on a route that takes them through the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. Next, the route runs along the shorelines of both Lake Mendota and Lake Monona, and around Monona Bay before heading back up Washington Avenue for the home stretch in to the finish line back at Capitol Square.
