Runners start the out-and-back course for the Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Half Marathon at Elmwood Park in Roanoke, at Jefferson Street and Bullitt Avenue. From there, the course heads first into the steep, challenging hills of Mill Mountain Park, and later brings a second set of challenging hills, especially in the stretch along Peakwood Drive. The course finishes close to where it started, just off Bullitt Avenue and inside Elmwood Park.
