People run or walk marathons for many reasons including honoring someone special in their lives, meeting personal goals, or striving for personal health and fitness. A marathon is a personal challenge like no other and whether this is your first or your 20th marathon, we want this experience to inspire you just like your efforts inspire others.

The 2015 Cohick 13.1 Half-Marathon

 

Date: Sunday, November 1
Start Time: 7:00 AM
Starting Line: Bass Pro Shops Store; 1935 South Campbell Avenue, Springfield, MO 65807 (Grand Entrance)
Finish Line: White River Conference Center; 600 West Sunshine Street, Springfield, MO

The Maynard Cohick Half-Marathon is a gold-standard race and the perfect race for seasoned and beginner half-marathoners. The half-marathon distance appeals to runners and walkers looking for a challenge to fit their current fitness level and time constraints.

Participants in the half-marathon start at the same time as marathon and marathon-relay participants. Half-marathoners will break off from the marathoners at Holland Street; the routes connect again in downtown Springfield. Most half-marathoners will reach this area before the full-marathon participants reach downtown. Overall, the course is excellent in every way and it displays the beautiful Autumn foliage of the Ozarks. There are some rolling hills from miles two through five, but the course is mostly flat after mile five.
