    Here is your 2023 Half Marathon Course Map.  We are still finalizing it with the municipalities, but we have an awesome tour of downriver with this fast,flat point to point half marathon.  This race will spend some time in Wyandotte, Riverview, Trenton, and Gibralter!

    Athletes can catch the early morning shuttle from the finish area to the start prior to race time! (Make sure you purchase a shuttle ticket!)
