Runners will follow an out-and-back course that runs along the eastern shoreline of Onondaga Lake at the Lake Effect Half Marathon, which starts and finishes at the Salt Museum on Lake Drive in Liverpool, the lakeside village just west of Syracuse. From there, runners will make their way along stretches of the East Lake Trail toward Willow Bay, all within Onondaga Lake Park. After they reach the turnaround point, runners then head back toward the museum for the race finish.
