From the starting line near the corner of Winter Street and Blumrich, the out-and-back course for the Foster Swift Grand Rapids Half Marathon follows a mostly southwestern direction toward the park, which also connects the area’s four major cities together — Wyoming, Grandville and Walker with Grand Rapids. While the race’s first half takes runners along the park’s northern edge along Butterworth Street, the second half features ample views for several miles of the Grand River, through the center of town.
