Just as we've done since 2018, we are excited to keep the 1/2 Marathon course open until Noon, providing athletes able to keep up a pace of at least 18:20 per mile the chance to finish. Continuing in 2020, the Marathon course will remain open until 2:30 p.m., providing athletes able to keep up a pace of at least 14:54 per mile the chance to finish.


To encourage more people to walk our event, we will once again partner with the New Albany Walking Club, which has provided pace leaders for our race for many years.


Additionally, the New Albany Walking Club has a walking group each Sunday and training programs for the Marathon & 1/2 Marathon.
