Runners start the point-to-point course for the Jim Thorpe Half Marathon from the view at the top of Flagstaff Mountain overlooking the Lehigh River below, into the valley below. They’ll run a stretch along the shoreline of Mauch Chunk Lake in the middle miles of the race, and then make their way into town, where they’ll finish the race along Packer Hill Avenue, in front of the Asa Packer Mansion Museum.
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.
