Also, since this is a public campus, the course will be open to other users on race day. So, we'll have the chance to see and greet and be friendly to other walkers and joggers. We look forward to sharing this event with the public in this way.
We've laid out a one-mile loop on this campus which is certified accurate by USA Track & Field. Our USATF course identifier is IN19010TDK, IN19015TDK and IN19016TDK for the 5K, Half, and Marathon respectively.
If you are interested in this race, you know a marathon is twenty-six point two miles, not an even twenty-six. So, you ask, how do we get the extra two-tenths of a mile? We have a plan! On the course, we will route you out and back in the parking lot during our first lap. Thus, your first time around the course will be 1.2 miles or 1.1 miles depending on your selected race
...all the rest of the laps will be 1.0 miles. Simple right? We thought so too!
