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. 

Aid stations at the beginning of the loop (about the 1 mile mark) and in the middle (just past the 3 mile mark) with Gatorade, Water, and maybe a little extra nutrition as well. We're likely to have some GU packets available, but plan to carry your own stuff as well. 

MARATHON ONLY--6AM START AVAILABLE FOR "VELOCITY CHALLENGED" RUNNERS. IF YOU PLAN TO WIN AN AWARD OR QUALIFY FOR BOSTON, YOU NEED TO START AT THE NORMAL START TIME AT 7AM

Six Mile Course (Note--the 6 mile finish line is adjusted to be at the same place as the marathon finish line, so the course is about 58 feet longer by the time you get to the finish line.)
