Indiana > Lake City International Marathon, Half Marathon, 50K & 8K
Warsaw, IN



Saturday, September 13, 2008

Event Details

You'll need to be ready for an early start time at Warsaw and nearby Winona Lake's Lake City International Marathon, Half Marathon & 50K race, as all three races share the same starting time of 6:00 AM. Fast and mainly flat, the course takes runners on a loop starting at the Kosciusko Community YMCA and running through the northern parts of downtown Warsaw for the 13.1-mile half marathon; for the full, 26.2-mile marathon, runners follow the second 13.1 miles around Winona Lake just to the south of town.

The Lake City event has a relatively short history (it has been run annually since 2004) and enjoys an intimate, small-size race field -- fewer than 100 runners crossed the finish line in the 2007 race. Nevertheless, what it lacks in size it makes up for in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere among the race organizers and volunteers, past participants add. Though it has had problems with mile markers in particular in some past events, last year's running of the event was reportedly a well-organized and enjoyable race.

As of early March 2008, race organizers have established a set date for the event but its actual running may still be in doubt -- one of the event's potential star runners has not been able to leave his home country of Kenya due to the recent political turmoil there, and race organizers plan to announce by March 15, 2008, whether to go ahead with the race or not.
