Runners follow a combination of paved roads and paved bike trails at the Kroll’s Diner Bismarck Half Marathon, which follows an out-and-back course that starts and finishes near the baseball fields at Cottonwood Park, along 12th Street. From there, the course heads around the edges of the ballfields along the paths and then out onto the roads at Burleigh Avenue, which runners will follow until it turns onto Smokey Lane and Riverwood Drive, and then head across the Missouri River.
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.
