The Half Marathon, sponsored by Vacation Races, with as many as 2,500 participants, will take place from 7 - 10:30 a.m. on Sky Ranch Road just north of Oakhurst, continuing down Beasore Road, crossing Malum Ridge Road (274) to the Pines Village, with runners then heading west on North Shore Road (432) to the finish line at Recreation Point on Road 222.
Medals will be presented to the top five finishers in a number of age divisions.
For the safety of participants, Beasore Road will be closed during the race, and motorists using North Shore Road between the Pines Village and Recreation Point are advised to drive with caution during the race due to the large number of runners who will be on the road. Traffic will continue to operate, but drivers should expect heavy delays. Race organizers are asking that if at all possible, drivers should avoid vehicular traffic during these hours.
