Description

The Boy Scout Half Marathon offers three distances ; Half Marathon, 10K, and 5K. All events begin and finish at the Wood County Fairgrounds.

The half marathon enjoys a very flat route through the heart of a college downtown. This course scenery has it all -- Industrial, downtown, wooded bike paths, golf course neighborhood, and City Park.

Water stops are staffed by our area scout troops in uniform who thank you for supporting them. 

The post race refreshment zone, sponsored by Southeastern Container, offers chocolate milk, fresh fruit, and more.

Finally, Boy Scout Troops serve up a pancake breakfast for all, now included with your registration.
