The course starts in downtown Brighton, continuing into local scenic areas and returning downtown to finish. Course is mostly paved with portions on hard-packed dirt roads; mostly flat with a few "modest" hills to add a little challenge. The half marathon course will be closed at 9:45am. There are water stations, mile markers, and course monitors along the way!

The race benefits our local non-profit partners in the fight against hunger!
