Half Marathon Course Description

A fun mix of paved trail through the Orange Beach, Gulf Shores and Gulf State Park "back-country" along with stretches on Gulf State Park Road 2 and E. Beach Blvd along the beautifal Alabama Gulf Coast - all but around 3 miles is on the beautiful, back-country paved trail system. This system has been expanded each year since this event started, so we continue to adjust the course to take advantage of these amazing, peaceful trails.

Both the 5k run & 1 mile run start behind the soccer fields on the service road and proceed west on the trail like the Half Marathon course. The 5k will be a loop and the 1 mile will turn around at a 1/2 mile. Both runs finish at the start line, which is now the race finish line. The 5k & 1 mile run will be completely on the paved back-country trail.
