The first 3.5 miles of this USATF certified course are identical to the Kalamazoo Marathon. However, when marathoners veer onto Lovell, half marathoners continue on Burdick until they meet back up with the marathon course, which they’ll follow until the finish. You will find course excitement all along the way – the Kalamazoo community comes out in force to provide runner support.
Midwest Half & Half Challenge
The Kalamazoo Marathon has partnered with the Wisconsin Marathon and the Indy Mini to offer this double half marathon challenge — 2 Half Marathons in 2 Days — are you up for the challenge?.
