Here is an interactive version of the course from USA Track & Field.

NOTE: run time weather – 64 degrees and 30 percent chance of a shower.

NOTE: I created this without knowing the exact start/finish locations on O’Henry so it may appear to be less than it actually is — 13.1 miles.

I have a really good feel for this course and I’m looking forward to September, 12, 2009. I have run every part of this course three times. First, I split the course into three sections and ran each one individually. Then I did two complete practice runs from start to finish with other runners. It is a great course. The race director — Greg Duff — did a great job modifying the course to minimize motor traffic conflicts. The result is a more varied course with intersting twists and turns that help keep the half-marathon runners interested.

I plan to do my final complete run of the course this coming Saturday, August 22, 2009 at 7:30 AM. I’ll be there a little early if any runners have questions about the course — I’ll have course maps, in case runners get separated.

If you think you might participate, please post a comment. No problem if you change your mind, it’s just helpful to know how many might come before we head out.
