Alabama > Holiday Half Marathon & 8K Run
Point Clear, AL • Saturday, December 8, 2012 • Course Map
Organized and run by the Port City Pacers, the Mobile, Ala.-based running group that puts on a number of local races throughout the year, the Holiday Half Marathon & 8K Run has become something of a tradition in the Point Clear area, as it has attracted runners from around the state for the past several years.
The out-and-back race starts and finishes at Point Clear's Mullet Point Park, and takes runners down to Pelican Point along County Road 1 for most of the race, with a brief detour onto Highway 27 for an out-and-back three miles, and then back onto CR 1 for the remainder of the race, which runners follow along the course they just ran back toward the finish line.
