RunLBL! Half Marathon & 10K

Quick facts

Distance Half marathon

About RunLBL! Half Marathon & 10K

RunLBL! Marathon and Half Marathons take place on the roads. But before you concern yourself that you are not a road runner, please re-consider. These roads take you into the wonderful woods of LBL. It’s like being on a trail without the trip hazards.

The course starts by the incomparable shoreline of Kentucky Lake amidst the signature lighthouse and sailboats of Lighthouse Landing resort, and proceeds to Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area. The section on Kentucky Lake Scenic Drive is just that… Scenic views of the lake. From there runners use paved bike paths and small paved, and sometimes gravel (not the big clunky kind that hurts your feet) roads on their journey down to Moss Creek Campsite beside the lake. Run a little loop and you’re back on the bike path, and trace yourself back to the finish at Grand Rivers Tourism office. This completes the 13.1 half marathon. Marathoners get to head back out for the second loop. 

This is not just an out-and-back course with a lot of vehicle traffic. We close the roads except for the main road running through LBL. (a .5 mile section).,

Practicalities

After Race Services

Post race food: will consist of grilled hamburgers, hot dogs, and other fun stuff. Of course there will be veggie options. And something we haven't been able to take advantage of at the March LBL trail runs... the Ice Cream place is open just a block from the finish.

Aid Stations

Aid stations abound. 7 of them on the course. They contain water, SWORD hydration drink, Coke, energy gels, and bananas and other snacks.

Award Medals

Sweet amenities include: Long sleeve tech shirts (gender specific), a runner's cap, or sock cap, drawstring bag, and all finishers receive a custom medallion.

Equipment Storage

Drop bags for marathoners will be conveniently located just after the finish of the first loop.

Parking

Officials will meet you at the intersection of Hwy 453 and Commerce St to direct you to parking. There is an ample amount, and you will be within 1/4 mile of the finish. Please arrive in plenty of time to park, get your packet if necessary, use the porta johns (located at the finish area, and at the start), and walk the 10 minute walk to the start area. The start area is gorgeous, so why not get there a little early, instead of the last minute?

Timing

Chip timing, and rapid results. Live Tracking.
