Runners start the out-and-back course for the half marathon on the campus of Ithaca’s Cornell University, just south of Tower Road and near the university’s athletic facilities. From there, runners head out on a loop route along Ellis Hollow Road, which takes them through the rural areas east of the university where they’ll encounter the famed “skunk” cabbage that gives the race its name.
Note: The course map above provides the approximate route for the race. Though every effort has been made to ensure its accuracy, changes are sometimes made to race routes due to weather conditions, road closures or other circumstances that can require a course to be changed.
