Runners follow an out-and-back course that winds along the banks of Beaver Creek at the Strawberry Plains Half Marathon, which starts and finishes at Rush Strong School. From there, the course takes runners onto the Old Andrew Johnson Highway, and then onto Big Bend Road and Bluff Road, which run roughly parallel to the creek. After runners hit the half-way turnaround point, they then run in reverse along the same route, all the way back to the school for the race finish.
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.
