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.
