Runners follow a loop route through this small town in the middle of the state at the Flatlander Half Marathon, which organizers say is “arguably the flattest half marathon course in the region… maybe the planet!” From the starting line on 9th Street, the race takes a couple of turns through town and then heads out onto the Great Bend Hike & Bike Trail, which you’ll stay on for a few miles. Later the race heads back through town and finishes on Forest Avenue, near the Barton County Courthouse.
