The Marion Arts Festival Half Marathon (May 14, 2016, 7:30 am start) is quickly becoming a favorite season opener for many who are wanting a longer more challenging early season race.

Registration for next year will begin in mid December.

The race begins at 6th Avenue and 8th Street and ends on 6th Avenue and 10th Street close to the Library and City Square Park, in downtown Marion, Iowa.

Course Description
The Course
The 13.1 mile course will have a mixture of flat areas and there will also be hills. It stays completely within the city limits of Marion.

This course will feature the past, present and future of what Marion has to offer. You will start and finish in downtown Marion by City Square Park. City Hall, the Library and the Heritiage Center are all in close proximity.

The start of the race begins on 6th Avenue up the block from the finish line. Runners will head over to 5th Avenue and up to 16th Street before coming back to 13th Street to cross over 7th Avenue. At 8th Avenue the course heads East and along the Historic District of Marion on the way to 35th Street. Runners will head through the new round-about on 35th and into Hunters Ridge Golf Course.
