THE OLD FARTS HALF MARATHON
13.1 MILES of Sheer Fun! THE MUMMY Sat. August 12th, 2017
Hope your up for seeing some of West Michigan's most scenic and beautiful country side. All that and More in this half marathon...
The half marathon course course offers some of the best scenery that West Michigan has to offer. The race will run with the marathoners for the first loop (13.1 miles) along with the 5k-ers for the first 3 miles. You will go over the historic covered bridge and then run on trails for the next 2 miles. You come out on the paved Fallasburg Park road for a 1/2 mile and then its back in the trails the rest of the way...you may not run a p.r. on this course, but if you are looking for a run that is exciting, challenging, scenic with UPs and Downs....then this race is for you.
Yes, there will be the "check first with your doctor" before attempting these hills on this years race... we like to name the hills so this year plan on running up Dorothy's Ridge(your not in Kanas anymore) you will experience this year's new Hill called WITCH HILL (and No she's not the nice kind!); there's also the Ed; the FRED(you will dread the Fred) and Little Chuck! and you will have to traverse through the Larry(it is sure to be Scary!)
