Clinton Half Marathon routes released

(Continued)

10K

The 10K is a perfect mix of distance, speed and endurance. This course will reward both the speedster and the long-distance runner. This hilly 10K race follows the same scenic route as the Half Marathon: up Second Avenue South through residential neighborhoods, then down 13th Avenue North, before splitting off for a fast and flat finish. The 10K distance has long been a favorite of those in training for a marathon or half Marathon.

5K

The 5K is flat and fast. Just what runners like to hear. 5K runners will start off with the half marathon and 10K runners, but split off in the opposite direction at the first turn. The course then runs straight to Pershing and up to Fourth Street, where runners can enjoy the spectator support waiting at Mercy Hospital. After a short spur back to Pershing and a turnaround, runners will be on the same course as the other two races. The course finishes out back to the end of Pershing, then a right turn, two left turns and a sprint finish.

Proceeds from the Clinton Half Marathon will be donated to help support the YWCA.

“We are proud to be able to help support the YWCA and all that it does for this community,” Peck said.

All participants will receive an official Asics short sleeve tech race T-shirt, a finisher medal and entry into the Hy Vee post-race party in the Lumber Lounge at Ashford University Field. Registration is available on the Clinton Half Marathon website at www.clintonhalfmarathon.com.

  • Technology plays key part in battling police brutality (with VIDEO)

    Allegations of police brutality are nothing new -- as long as there has been law enforcement, citizens have registered claims that some officers cross the line. But in the last few years, the claims of excessive force are being corroborated with new technology from cell phone cameras, police dash-cams and surveillance videos.
