We are very sorry that the July 12th had to be rescheduled. We cannot take issue with the Parklands wishing to protect their trail system, and hope to see everyone July 19. Same place

Due to the ongoing COVID19 Crisis, there will be no pre-race packet pickup. 

Parking will be tight so PLEASE carpool with as many fellow runners as possible. 

Join us for the second year of Hotter Than July 1/4 & 1/2 Marathon to be run on the amazingly runnable Turkey Run Park (Parklands) Trail System! Choose from a 1 lap 1/4 marathon (6.55 miles) or a 2 lap half marathon option through these wonderfully underrated trails. Runners will receive a race shirt, great finishers medal (both races) overall and age group awards, professional chip timing, free race photos, and a beautiful course on beginner-friendly trails.

Split times will be recorded and text messaging of splits and finish times will be available.

We will be enforcing a 3:30 cutoff time (~16 minute/mile pace) for the half marathon. 

Aid Stations will be located at mile 4 (no cutoff), 6.5 (1:45 cutoff for the half), and 10 (2:40 cutoff for the half) for the half marathon and mile 4 for the 1/4 marathon. They will feature typical aid station support. This is a cupless event and runners will be expected to carry at least 12 oz of fluids for the half marathon. 

A course map can be found below. The loop runs counter clockwise. 1/4 Marathon runners complete one loop while 1/2 Marathon runners complete two.
