Half Marathoners will be in for a real treat when they run this point-to-point race. Runners will be shuttled from Bill Snyder Family Stadium to the starting line.

Once in town the course will go down Poyntz Ave, around City Park, through Aggieville, through KSU campus and finish INSIDE the Bill Snyder Family Stadium.
The 5k race will start and finish at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. The runners will come out of the parking lot heading east on Kimball, turn South on Denison and loop down by campus and then INSIDE the stadium.
