This is the second year for the Tell City Half Marathon and 5k! This year, we've added a team relay option for the Half Marathon!!
The first 3 miles, shared by both races, is fairly flat and will take you along the Ohio River, within the Tell City downtown area and along the city's residential streets. As the half marathon route leaves downtown, the course will roll for a mile before challenging you with a 200 foot elevation climb in 1.5 miles. It then takes you along county and state roads before heading back into town. You will enjoy wide residential streets and the scenic Windy Creek Greenway as you head towards the downtown finish line.
The teams for the team relay will be made of four (4) participants with each leg approximately 3+ miles in length. Put your team together with strong hill runners for the second and third legs and your faster runners for the flatter 1st and 4th legs. The team can join together for the last mile of the race.
Event details and schedule
Parking for the event will be at the St. Pauls Catholic Church parking area and residential streets. Race packets can be picked up on Friday April 5th between 8:30 a.m and 4:30 p.m. at EverBody's Fitness Center, 710 Fulton Street. The course will be on paved city, county and state roads and on paved greenways. Hydration stations and restrooms will be placed along the course as well as the beginning and at the end.
It is advisable to arrive for the race 30-45 minutes before the start to allow you time to warm-up and familiarize yourself with the course. The weather for southern Indiana in April can be unpredictable so come prepared for any type of weather!
If you're from out of town there are three motels that serve Tell City - Holiday Inn Express, Ramada Inn, and Knight's Inn.
