Sept. 21, 2016 - To all FitOne Half Marathon participants:
Please make note of a change to the FitOne Half Marathon course. This change is due to an incomplete construction project on the outermost section of the course. Please refer to the map below for the route update, and there will be course marshals and directional markings at all respective turns on race day. We apologize for this last minute update, as it does effect the total course distance and it runs a little short.* FitOne is designed as a fun, family-friendly event for the community, and none of the courses are certified by USATF. *Google Earth measurement shows the course update to run at approximately 12.93 miles. Actual course distance may vary per measurement devices used.
COURSE DISTANCES - PLEASE NOTE:
With overwhelming participant feedback to eliminate the u-turn before the finish line, we have moved our finish line inside Ann Morrison Park. We have done everything possible to maintain the distance integrity of all three distance courses, but we are also at the mercy of where the roads and pathways fall. This leaves us a little short on the 5K course at approximately 2.9 miles and a little long on the 10K course at 6.3 miles.
FitOne is designed as a fun, family-friendly event for the community, and none of the three courses are certified by USATF.
