Runners follow an out-and-back course for the Oktoberfest half marathon that takes them along the Pennypack Trail that winds along the Pennypack Creek, all the way to the Delaware River in nearby Philadelphia. The start/finish line is at the Pine Road park entrance, and most of the race (approximately 11 miles) takes runners over paved bike trails, while the remaining couple of miles are run on crushed cinder surface trails.
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.
