Just like the marathon, the half marathon features a relatively fast and flat course, great volunteer support and a scenic view of downtown Cleveland and its major landmarks. The course has been designed for our athletes to enjoy views of FirstEnergy Stadium, Home of the Cleveland Browns, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Lake Erie and many other Cleveland highlights. The 13.1 mile course mirrors the first half of the marathon course through mile 12. Half marathoners will turn off at that time, but finish at the same location as the marathoners.
The Half Marathon course is open for 4 hours.
All half marathon runners and walkers will receive a Virtual Race Bag, an Asics technical short-sleeved T-shirt, and a unique finishers medal with a spinning guitar. The top three male and females in each age group will receive an award that will mailed post-race.
Half Marathon Walkers
In order to complete in the walking division, you will be expected to walk the entire distance; completion of the course is on the honor system. The overall top five male and females will recieve an award that will be mailed post-race.
