The half marathon will be on the Mahaska County Recreation Trail all around Oskaloosa with a little bit of the running on the streets. UPDATE: The race will begin by the new Lacey Complex Stadium. This will allow for more parking and better central location for the meet. We will follow the path down and around the city of Oskaloosa. The course is hilly, but full of a lot of beautiful scenery. The race will begin and end by the community stadium for your convenience. The race is a USATF certified race.
