This course was strategically selected to offer the flatest and fastest half marathon course in Raleigh, if not the state.
The start will be on the roads inside Buffaloe Road Athletic Park. Runners will head down towards the Neuse River Greenway Trail, where they will head North for approximately 6 miles before turning around, heading back towards Buffaloe Road Athletic Park, where they will take the path back up the right side, before finishing the final 400 meters on the track.
Chip timing will be provided by Clockwork Race Timing. The Raleigh Half Marathon is a USATF Sanctioned Event and the course is USATF certified (Official Map here). Here’s the Strava route (and segment). The start (on the road), the finish (on the track), the turnaround, and all mile markers are currently painted on the course in yellow.
