The half marathon distance appeals to runners and walkers, who are looking for a challenging distance, without committing to the training for a full 26.2-mile marathon. Participants in the half marathon start at the same time as marathon and marathon relay participants. Half marathoners share the same course until just before the 13-mile mark, where they turn to head towards the finish line.
