Set for its fourth annual running along the rolling, hilly countryside of northern Vanderburgh County here in southwestern Indiana in the spring of 2013, Evansville's Southern Indiana Classic Marathon & Half Marathon will also be the city's first qualifying event for the 2013 running of the Boston Marathon. At the race's second annual running in 2011, more than 1,000 runners and walkers crossed the finish line in the half marathon alone.

The out-and-back loop course for both the full and the half marathons will take place just miles from the city's downtown, which lies along a U-shaped bend in the Ohio River, giving the city its nickname "River City." Walkers are welcome at both the full marathon and the half marathon, organizers note, adding that half marathon walkers will have 3 hours, 51 minutes to complete the race (which works out to a pace of about 17 minutes per mile).

From the race's start and finish lines at the Vanderburgh County 4-H grounds near Darmstadt, the race follows a clockwise loop through the hills and farmlands just to the west of the fairgrounds. The race's hilliest stretches are in the early going, particular between the starting line and the mile 2 marker, and the last couple miles of the race are (thankfully for the runners!) mostly downhill back into the finish line.


Race Weather & Climate

Located in the southwestern corner of Indiana, roughly a two-hour drive west from Louisville, Ky., the city of Evansville typically experiences mild to moderately cool weather conditions in the early spring, as well as its heaviest precipitation during the spring season. In April, the city's average monthly temperatures range between 72°F and 48°F, while rainfall amounts average just over 4.5 inches for the month. On the day of the race (April 6), the average high is 72°F and the average low is 48°F.

How to Avoid The Porta Potty During a Race

We've all seen it and most of us have done it ... 30 minutes (or less) into a race athletes are already looking for a port potty. The good news is that it doesn't have to be that way. The secret is a proper hydration plan before the gun goes off, and here's how you do it.

Reviews
Average Rating:  
Recent Review: I have only run large, major marathons and wanted a more low-key atmosphere this time. Given that this was an inaugural race I had some concerns that it would be chaotic and poorly organized. Boy was this not the case! The only part that seemed somewhat disorganized was actually getting into the fairgrounds and getting parked. There was no traffic direction and it was very backed up. Other than that things were great. There were ample port-o-potties at the start. I was concerned about the start as well since there weren’t any corrals or paces but it ended up being very smooth. The course was very nice. There were a few hills but I live and train in Nashville, TN so the hills were minimal compared to what I was used to. The only negative about the course would be if it was very hot. Since you are out in the middle of the country there is little to no shade. Luckily this year it wasn’t too hot but if the temps rise it would be brutal. I was extremely impressed with the amount of race support. For such a small race there were a ton of enthusiastic volunteers and ample water stops. Also the medical support was terrific. I saw medical personnel on the course every 5-10 minutes which was great. Overall it was an awesome race (although I didn’t do as well as I would have liked) and would recommend it to everyone.
