Carmel Half Marathon


The Carmel Half Marathon starts with the Carmel Marathon participants but will split around 1.5 miles with a U-turn to go on its own. Marathoners will rejoin the half marathon route prior to you entering the Hagan Burke Trail. Finally, marathoners and half marathoners will join together to finish just north of the Palladium at the intersection of 3rd Avenue and City Center Drive allowing friends and families to witness both without having to leave an area. Corrals will open at 6:45 a.m. with opening ceremonial remarks and National Anthem beginning at 7:15 a.m. followed by the 7:30 a.m. official start.

Also a walker friendly event, the half marathon course will be open for 6.5 hours or until 2 p.m. The half marathon will be capped at 2,000 participants. As with the marathon course, the half marathon course will also highlight picturesque views of Hamilton County, Carmel Clay Parks trails, spectator friendly neighborhoods, Carmel Arts and Design Downtown District, and the new state-of-the art Palladium at the Center for the Performing Arts where music will help you rest and catch up with friends and family.

Gender-specific technical shirts will be provided for all participants and a commemorative finisher’s medal!
