Runners start the out-and-back course for the half marathon in downtown Salem, at the intersection of East Main Street and South Broad Street. From there, the course — which is designed for the first-time half marathoner, organizers say, and features a 4-hour course time limit — follows many twists and turns along city streets, with stretches through the campus of Roanoke College and along the Roanoke River in the second half of the race.
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.
