Event Details

The Course

The 2017 half marathon course is similar to last year's popular route. The course begins at Main Street Plaza, near JTI Fountain.  The first few miles take runners down Memorial Drive and across the Robertson Bridge, featuring beautiful views of the Dan RIver and the new YMCA.  After crossing the bridge, runners stay on roads for another 1 1/2 miles.  The course then joins the scenic Riverwalk Trail near Dan River Church for the remainder of the race, eventually looping back to a fantastic finish on the King Memorial Bridge.  There are a couple of hills near the beginning of the race, but the course is otherwise extremely flat and fast.
