Run along mostly flat terrain, the Five Points of Life Half Marathon – which features a USATF-certified route – begins and finishes at the Hippodrome Theatre in downtown Gainesville. From there, the half marathon follows a loop course through the city, navigating through bed and breakfast row, the University of Florida campus, and the “Bacon Strip”, where Olympians have trained for decades.
