Runners follow an out-and-back course at the Roots & Blues & BBQ Festival Half Marathon, which starts and finishes in Columbia’s Stephens Lake Park and features stretches through the campus of the University of Missouri here near the banks of the Missouri River. From Flat Branch Park, runners head out on a clockwise loop route that takes them through the Grindstone Natural Area park and along stretches of the Katy Trail.
