link above regarding modification of half-marathon course due to
flooding at Wood Lake Nature Center. The modified course
and 5K courses have been
redesigned for the first time in 10 years! The USATF-certified
half-marathon course is still circular (now a closed loop, so it begins
and ends at the exact same spot), still fast and flat, still scenic!
The new course passes through
Lake, around Taft Park, through
Veterans Park, and now
along a section of the Three Rivers Park
District regional bike trail corridor along 76th Street.

both courses, visit the Course Info page
