The Battle Creek Half Marathon and 5k is Battle Creek's first and only half marathon. Starting at Territorial Brewing Company, participants will run to and through the grounds of the Field of Flight and experience air crafts and more while getting an up close view of the festival grounds as they are running by. Runners will then continue on the beautiful streets and boulevards of Battle Creek for a fairly flat, scenic course.

Packet Pick-Up

Packet pick-up will be available on Friday before the event  from 3-8 pm at Festival Market Square, Downtown Battle Creek. It is possible to have friends or family pick up your packet for you.

If you registered for Breakfast and Brews you will receive your wristband for that event. However, you will still need to present your ID to Territorial Brewing Company to validate age the day of the event.

While we realize it may be difficult for some to make it to the Friday packet pick-up, we are offering a VERY LIMITED packet pick-up the morning of the event from 6-6:30. Please make every effort possible to have your registration materials picked up at the scheduled packet pick-up on Friday.

Due to the timing of the event this year, we will be offering an early bird packet pick up so participants can get their Field of Flight passes and have time to enjoy the festival. Location and times TBD. An email will be sent out with more details closer to the event. 

Charity Partner

Each year we select a charity partner that serves veterans in our own community. Our 2019 charity partner has not been selected yet. If you would like to nominate an organization, please email info@cerealcityathletics.com.
