This is a reflection of the 2018 event! Updated 2019 information to come soon!

Half Marathon

The Half Marathon course is spectacular! Starting on Blackwell Street at the American Tobacco Campus, runners will begin with a loop through beautiful Downtown Durham and then head over to the quiet streets of the Trinity Park neighborhood. Next, they’ll run through the well-known 9th Street shopping/dining district and then through Duke University’s beautiful East Campus. Next, they’ll run downhill to Duke’s West Campus via gorgeous Campus Drive, into the Duke Forest neighborhood and over to Forest Hills. Finally, the-finish line awaits back at American Tobacco Campus on Blackwell street next to the Durham Performing Arts Center.

It’s a truly spectacular course that showcases Durham with a great variety of neighborhoods!
