The Huntsville Half and Quarter Marathon & 5K this year will Start and Finish at the WALKER COUNTY FAIR GROUNDS. Race Starts at 8am. The course is largely flat with only a few gradual hills (much more friendly to our runners from Houston!). Be forewarned, it could be hot on race day. Temperatures have ranged in the past anywhere from in the mid 40s to the low 80s and as the race progresses, humidity may creep up on you as well.
