The Battle Creek Half Marathon and 5k is Battle Creek's first and only half marathon. Starting at Territorial Brewing Company, participants will run to and through the grounds of the Field of Flight and experience the balloons launching while getting an up close view of the festival grounds as they are running by. Runners will then continue on the beautiful streets and boulevards of Battle Creek for a fairly flat, scenic course.
