Runners start the half marathon just outside downtown Canton at the Stark County Fairgrounds. From there, they head east and north through the city along a short gradual downhill stretch just before a moderate climb for the remainder of the first five miles. From there, the elevation changes gradually leads runners downhill until a steady climb and a mostly-flat last two miles of the race, leaving runners to coast to the finish line at the Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium.
