 A Brief Course Tour

Enjoy the optimal runner experience throughout the entirety of the course with shade being provided in all the right places and then enjoy a big league finish as you cross your own goal line inside IG Field!

  • Our 2000 volunteers will motivate you with their “Miles of Smiles”
  • Great Hospitality Stations will keep you energized.
  • The excitement of our four Relay Exchange Zones are second to none!
