From the starting line just north of the wildlife refuge, runners in the Fly With the Eagles Half Marathon follow a route that takes them along the roads and trails of the Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge, which lies just to the west of Marion. Though the course features some gently rolling hills, overall the elevation change is minimal throughout the race, which finishes just north of the wildlife refuge back at the start line.
