The half marathon follows the full marathon route for 6.55 miles. The turn around point for the half marathon is at Meadow View and Sand Trap, just after aid station 6. Turn around, and follow the same course back to Crescent Village for a nice meal, and a rest.
Half Marathon Map
Beautiful and Flat
Enjoy nice neighborhoods with well tended lawns and gardens, lush greenery in the park, and views of the McKenzie River. There is very little elevation gain or loss, but a lot of variety of landscape to enliven your spirit as you run or walk.
Watch for chalk marks on the pavement, bright orange traffic cones, and 8.5X11 posters on wooden stakes to guide you. There will also be trained course marshals at every turn, and two Course Managers driving around watching for you. They have specific instructions to keep you safe and on track, which is our organization’s number one priority.
