Runners follow an out-and-back course for the Iron Girl Half Marathon, which starts and finishes at the Mall in Columbia along Sterrett Place. From there, the course winds west along Little Patuxent Parkway past the campus of Columbia’s Howard County Community College in the direction of the nearby Clarksville Environmental Area park, through mostly residential neighborhoods, especially in the middle miles of the race.
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.
