Historic Half Marathon (13.1 Mile) Course
Run GPR half marathon consists of a fast flat start on a compact trail for the first 4 miles. Participants will then shift into miles 5 through 7 which covers the Pony Ride and Merry Go Round portion of the trails consisting of rolling hills with spectacular views of the foothills and nature all around. The final portion of the course passes by travel town, the zoo, and along the fastest portion of the course which is mostly flat compact trail.
