Runners follow an out-and-back course for the half marathon, which starts at Parkside Elementary School here in southeastern Illinois and finishes on the school’s track and field complex. In between the start and finish lines, runners head onto the nearby city streets for the race’s first couple of miles, and then out onto the rolling country roads that lie between Lawrenceville and nearby Bridgeport for most of the rest 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.
