Runners follow an out-and-back loop course through West Virginia’s third-largest city at the Parkersburg News & Sentinel Half Marathon, which starts at the intersection of 3rd and Juliana Streets downtown. From there, the race takes those running the half marathon (there is also a 2-mile run) through a combination of downtown city streets, parks and suburban neighborhoods south of the city, including a pair of bridge crossings over the Little Kanawha River.
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.
