For those running the half marathon, the course follows much of the same route as the full marathon for the race’s first eight miles or so, as runners make their way eastward from Esser Pond in the direction of Lake Mendota. After runners reach the mile 5 marker, the course then heads away from Middleton’s downtown up along Parmenter Street and toward the trails along the creek that lead to the Pheasant Branch Conservancy.
Note: The course map above provides the approximate route for the race. Though every effort has been made to ensure its accuracy, changes are sometimes made to race routes due to weather conditions, road closures or other circumstances that can require a course to be changed.
