Saturday, March 10, 2018 • Peculiar, MO • Course Map
The early spring running of Peculiar’s Lucky 13.1 Half Marathon & 5K Run/Walk, takes participants on a fast and mostly flat out-and-back course from the football stadium at Raymore Peculiar High School out to Coleman Road and back to the school for the finish.
Sponsored and organized by the high school’s RayPec Cross Country team, the race features some rolling uphill and downhill stretches, especially along the middle portions of the race along Prairie Lane and Coleman Road, between the mile 3 and 5 markers as well as between miles 10 and 13 (which runners head back along on the route back toward the finish).
Many of the roads along the race feature tree-lined streets with ample views of the wide-open countryside in and around Peculiar, as well as several lakes and ponds.
The race also features a poker-style raffle for all runners in the race, as participants are given playing card stickers at each water station along the route, and will be able to put together a poker “hand” for which they’ll receive prizes if they have the best hand of cards at the end of the race.
