About The Battle Creek Half Marathon and 5k

The Battle Creek Half Marathon and 5k is the most exciting and anticipated race in Battle Creek, Michigan. As the city’s first and only half marathon, it offers a unique and exhilarating experience for all participants.

Starting at the well-known brewing facility of Territorial Brewing Company, runners will embark on a picturesque journey, making their way to and through the magnificent grounds of the Field of Flight festival. As they stride through the course, they will have the rare opportunity to witness the grandeur of air crafts and other captivating sights that the festival has to offer. This immersive experience truly sets the Battle Creek Half Marathon apart from any other race.

Following their adventure at the festival, participants will continue along the enchanting streets and boulevards of Battle Creek. The course, known for its overall flatness, provides a scenic route that showcases the beauty of the city. Whether you are a seasoned runner seeking a personal best or a newcomer looking to conquer your first half marathon, this course promises to deliver an exceptional and enjoyable experience for all.

Additionally, it is important to note that due to the high demand and limited resources, participation numbers will be capped once orders are placed. The past two events, held in 2022 and 2023, sold out quickly. To ensure you snag a spot and take advantage of the best deals, early registration is highly recommended.

In terms of weather, July in Battle Creek offers optimal conditions for a race. With average temperatures ranging from 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C), you can expect pleasant running conditions. While a touch of summer warmth may be present, rest assured that the race organizers have meticulously planned water stations along the route to keep participants hydrated and energized.
