About The East Fork Trail Half Marathon
The East Fork Trail Half Marathon in Bethel, Ohio on 15 April 2023 is a unique experience for runners of all levels. The 13.1 mile course follows the scenic East Fork Little Miami River and passes through some of the most beautiful parts of the area along its route.
The half marathon begins at 9am in downtown Bethel, near the intersection of State Route 32 and State Route 125. From there it’s a steady climb up to nearly 1,000 feet above sea level before winding back down into town again for an easy finish line celebration! Along the way runners will enjoy incredible views of local wildlife including birds, deer, foxes and even beavers along with stunning wildflowers and other foliage that can only be found in this part of Ohio.
The typical weather that time of year is usually mild with temperatures ranging from 50-70 degrees Fahrenheit making it perfect running weather without too much heat or humidity to contend with while on the course. The crowds are typically small but enthusiastic as locals come out to cheer on their friends and family participating in this exciting event.
One thing that really makes this half marathon stand out is its unique “challenge” aspect where participants can challenge themselves by attempting to set new personal records or simply take their time enjoying all that nature has to offer along the way! With plenty of rest stops available throughout you won’t find yourself struggling too hard during those last few miles either! All finishers receive an awesome medal as well so everyone gets something special after completing such an amazing feat!
