Runners start the loop course for the Owensboro Memorial Day Half Marathon on the campus of Kentucky Wesleyan College, a 150-year-old liberal arts college that lies just south of the city’s downtown. From there, runners head out on a counter-clockwise loop route that takes them southward through the city out into the rolling rural areas along Highway 431, a stretch that’s mostly flat for the first few miles.
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.
