Runners start the out-and-back course for the half marathon along Riverside Drive, next to Beale Street Landing along the Mississippi River. From there, the race heads into the city, unfolding past the National Civil Rights Museum and the Peabody Hotel, as well as stretches through downtown and along world-famous Beale Street. The second half of the race takes runners over onto Mud Island and back, before finishing back at the Beale Street Landing.
