Half Marathon Turn by Turn Notes

*Turns are marked with arrows on signs, and small soccer cones.

*Start from the Nocatee Spray Park Stage area/field

*.5 Mile/ Water Station #1 – Turn right, continuing onto Nocatee Greenway.  Runners will do this out and back only once.

*1M – Shortly after the one mile marker runners will turn right into a residential area.  Run on the roadways when in a residential area, facing traffic.  After about a ¼ mile runners will turn right again, and finally hit a turn around in a cul-de-sac.  Runners return from the cul-de-sac all the way back to water station #1

*When runners return to water station #1 they turn right, and continue through the Nocatee Greenway.  When the Greenway ends, runners turn right and travel south on the Crosswater Parkway.  Runners stay on the east side of Crosswater Pkw, always on the extra wide walking walking path.

*Near Mile 5, runners use the crosswalk to pass through the vehicle round-a-bout, and then turn right on Conservation Trail.  Runners will be on the south side of Conservation Trail, again on the extra wide walking path

*At Mile 6, the walking trail will turn left onto Crosswater Edge Dr.

*Runners will make the second left onto Freedom Landing Dr.  Once in this residential area, runners may run on the roadway facing traffic.

*Turn Right on to Crosswater Lake Dr.

*Near mile 7.5 runners will be directed back onto the wide walking path on the right side of Crosswater Lake Dr.  Runners will be directed to turn right on this walking path as it cuts away from the main road.

*The Half Marathon final turn around is at mile 7.7 on Village Grande Dr.

*Runners will retrace their course exactly all the way back to the first waterstation inside the Nocatee Greenway.  From this point runners continue straight, directly back to our start/finish area.
