Temperatures may already be dipping below freezing in mid-November, but that doesn’t stop runners in Missouri’s Longview Half Marathon, run to benefit Saint Luke’s Home Care & Hospice.
The half marathon course begins on Pittenger Road next to Longview Lake. From there, runners head south down Raytown Road before turning left onto High Grove Road and tackling the first large hill of the race. Fortunately, this uphill stretch followed by a turnaround point leads runners downhill for the next half mile before heading down the tree-lined Kurzwell Road.
After reaching the end of Kurzwell Road, runners turn around and continue running north along Raytown Road and 109th Street, tackling another hill before reaching another turnaround point past the northernmost part of the lake. From there it’s a few more smaller hills south to the finish line, where food, drinks, and celebrations await.
Race organizers note that the time limit for the course is three hours; runners need to maintain a 14-minute mile throughout the race.
