This course showcases downtown Middletown and the Wesleyan University community at its finest! Starting and finishing right in the heart of the city on Main Street, the route brings you on a tour around Wesleyan campus before sending you out on a journey to Wadsworth Falls State Park. These are the roads Amby Burfoot & Bill Rodgers trained on when they were in College. The end of the course brings your back through Wesleyan campus before a fast finish on Main Street.
The race runs with the half marathon through Wesleyan University campus before a fast finish on Main Street.
Course limit is 3.5 hours for the Harvard Pilgrim Middletown Half Marathon.
As a courtesy to the communities impacted by the races and the volunteers who serve, we have established Course Time Limits of 3.5 hours for the Half Marathon.
To finish within these time limits you must maintain a pace of approximately 16:30 minutes per mile. Official finishing times are recorded through 3.5 hours for the Half Marathon.
Along the Half Marathon race course, roads will reopen to traffic and water/aid stations will close down as the race moves by on a 16:30 minute per mile pace.
All runners running beyond Course Time Limits are doing so at their own risk. If you think your pace will be slower than a 16:30 minute mile pace, please be prepared and carry your own fluids and energy gel with you throughout the race.
Race staff will begin breaking down the finish line after course limits. Runners who come in after limits that are not able to collect a finisher medal on site, please contact the race office within 48 hours of the event. You may also request to receive a replacement race bib at that time.
