The half marathon shares much of the same course as the full marathon, starting at Civic Plaza downtown on 3rd & Tijeras Streets. From there, the course unfolds along Central Avenue and tree-lined Laguna Boulevard, taking runners past Robinson Park and the Rio Grande Zoological Park before turning onto the path along the river for the rest of the course, which also runs by the Botanical Garden and the Paseo del Bosque Recreation Trail and bicycle path.
