Runners follow an out-and-back course for the Fall Classic Half Marathon, which starts and finishes at Lee Park, near Charlottesville’s Historic Downtown Mall. From there, the race unfolds first through downtown, and then heads into Riverview Park, where it begins a two-mile-long stretch along the winding Rivanna River. After that, the course heads north along stretches of the Rivanna Trail, and then makes a loop along the residential neighborhoods on Dunlora Drive and Loring Run.
Note: The course map above provides the approximate route for the race.
