What's included

Runners and walkers — the half marathon and 10K races are designed for runners, while the 5K is open to runners and walkers — will follow out-and-back courses that start and finish at Soldiers Memorial Park, the 556-acre park that lies just west of downtown La Porte, between the shorelines of Stone Lake and Pine Lake.From there, the course makes what could be described roughly as a double loop route out into the rural country roads and farm fields west of the city.Though the course is filled with small, rolling hills throughout, the elevation climbs only very gradually from the starting line to the highest point on the course, a climb of less than 100 feet between the start and the half-way point of the race, out along North Goldring Road.After runners pass the mile 7 marker, the course begins a long and equally gradual descent over the second half of the race back toward Soldiers Park for the finish.The race’s finishing stretch brings runners back into the park on its southernmost side, via the entrance from Orchard Avenue onto Lake Shore Drive. Runners will finish with a winding stretch along Lake Shore Drive and the shoreline of Stone Lake, with a few turns through the neighborhoods just south of the lake before finishing back near the parking lot area off Grangemouth Drive.
