Informazioni Capital City River Run

Making the most of the surrounding terrain of the "Mid-Michigan" area, Lansing's Capital City River Run Half Marathon & 5K takes runners along a course that's a mix of urban city streets and big buildings as well as mile after mile of trails that run alongside the Grand River, which cuts right through the heart of the city. Part of a weekend full of local events that also include a 5K run/walk and two children's races, the race celebrates its 20th annual running in 2013 -- and just its 6th with the half-marathon distance.

For most of the event's history since it began in 1993, the race was run as an out-and-back 10-miler along the city's Lansing River Trail. Though the course had shifted several times over the years, last year brought the change to a 13.1-mile half marathon, which allowed race organizers to design a course that would show off many of the local area's most noteworthy attractions, including Michigan State University, Scott Woods Park and Potter Park, and of course the Lansing River Trail for much of the race.

The terrain for the course is almost all paved surfaces throughout the race, as it is run along a combination of city streets, highways just outside town and the eight-mile Lansing River Trail, which runs along the Grand River and the Red Cedar River, along a mix of tree-lined paved pathways and pedestrian bridges. From the starting line near the Lansing Center, the course follows an out-and-back loop in a counter-clockwise direction around the city, finishing up back near Oldsmobile Park, home of minor league baseball's Lansing Lugnuts.

Both the half-marathon and the 5K race welcome both runners and walkers, and both races share a starting time of 8:30 AM.
