Course

The course for the marathon is the same as the Last Chance BQ.2 Marathon - Grand Rapids. The half marathon uses the same course, but only 3 loops instead of 6 with a shorter leg to the finish line for a total of 13.3 miles (with a 13.1 split mat). The 6 mile uses the marathon course but with only one loop. It's about a mile from the start to the loop, and about a mile from the loop back to the finish.

The loop is 4.05 miles long. Mostly flat. The section between 2.5 and 3.5 (on the first time around) rolls gradually uphill but there are no major hills.
