Allen's Celebration Park
Runners will follow an out-and-back course that starts in Allen's Celebration Park and takes runners along the paved walking, running and biking trails that both wind through the park and extend outside the park and into the neighborhoods beyond the park, roughly in parallel with the Angel Parkway. Those running the half marathon will run the 6.55-mile course twice, while those running the full marathon will make four loops around the course.
Runners will circle through Celebration Park for the first 2 miles before taking a short ramp into a tunnel running under Angel Parkway. Another short ramp on the other side of the lighted tunnel and you are on Celebration Pass Trail which opened in June 2011. This trail is straight as an arrow for over a mile.
Cross a bridge, with a pond and a fountain as part of your scenery, take a right where the trail forks, and you’ll find yourself at Stacy Ridge Park, a cute neighborhood park for residents of northeast Allen. At 14.7 acres in size, Stacy Ridge Park has a covered pavilion, picnic tables, playground, and basketball courts. The trail naturally loops around here for a gentle race turnaround!
Runners will then travel back the way they came. Upon re-entering Celebration Park, it’s another mile back to the start/finish area. Half Marathon participants head out for one more loop, and Marathon participants will do this loop 4 times total.
