2024 Marshall University Marathon

November 3rd 2024! Huntington, WV 25703 US Directions

Half Marathon Course Map

The course changed very slightly in 2022 (due to the path at Ritter Park). We will be continuing to use this new course. 

The course is flat and fast! Runners start on 3rd Avenue next to Joan C. Edward Stadium and run through downtown Huntington past Pullman Square, next to the Ohio River, and through Ritter Park among other places. The highlight is a goal-line finish in Marshall Football Stadium.

There will be a total of 9-10 water stops along the course. In addition we will have bathrooms available in several locations as well. 

For the safety and enjoyment of all event participants, the courses are restricted to registered runners/walkers and official race personnel only.

No dogs, no strollers, no baby joggers, no bikes (other than official Bike EMS and Patrol Teams) , no inline skates, roller skates will be allowed on the course.

Violators will be disqualified and escorted from the course by race officials.

For the safety of all, the use of headphones is discouraged.

Note:  Some of the course is on the crushed limestone path around Ritter Park and the trail that leads to the park. It is very compacted and fast.  You do not need special shoes for this.
