Both the Mercedes Marathon and the Mercedes Half Marathon share the same starting line in downtown Birmingham, along Rev. Abraham Woods Boulevard between the Birmingham Museum of Art and Linn Park. From there, the race features a combination of terrain that’s fast and flat as well as hilly and more challenging, especially in the second half of the course — and watched over by the famed Vulcan Statue from the height of Red Mountain just south of downtown.
