Join Notre Dame Holy Half

The Holy Half Marathon is one of the largest student-organized events at the University of Notre Dame. 1,500 runners participate annually, coming from the Notre Dame, Saint Mary’s College and Holy Cross College campuses, the South Bend community, and the Irish fanbase and alumni network nationwide.

The Holy Half has truly become one of the greatest traditions at the University of Notre Dame. Runners take pride not only in training for and completing a 13.1-mile race, but also in making a difference to South Bend on behalf of the University.

The course runs along the beautiful campus of the University of Notre Dame passing iconic attractions including the Golden Dome, Grotto, Touchdown Jesus mural, and lakes. There is a strict cap of 1,500 runners. Forty percent of spots available are reserved for students.

The Holy Half aims to make a difference to our South Bend community on behalf of the University of Notre Dame. The event contributes to several charities each year.

Destacable en la ruta

Runners will start and finish the out-and-back loop course for the race in front of the Stepan Center, located at the corner of Stepan Drive and St. Joseph Drive.

From there, the course unfolds along the roads and walking paths in a counter-clockwise loop through campus, taking runners first north toward the residence halls and academic buildings, and later past the Fighting Irish athletic stadiums and facilities, including its football and baseball stadiums.

The course later turns to the right on the South Quad, and takes runners west toward the Knute Rockne Memorial athletic, fitness and recreational building, where they’ll run all the way to the front of the building, make two quick right turns, and then head east back along the north walk back toward the Main building, whose famous golden dome has long been a symbol of the university.

The next couple of miles take runners out on the paths that wind along the edges of both St. Mary’s and St. Joseph’s Lake, nearly all the way around the shoreline of both lakes.

Once runners make it back to Holy Cross Drive, they start the stretch that brings them back toward the performing arts center, where they’ll cross the starting line a second time and begin the second half of the race, repeating the route they’ve just run before crossing the finish line.
