The Murray community welcomes runners and walkers alike to our great community and hope you have a great experience!

The Course
The Murray Half Marathon (MHM) is a 13.1 mile route that gives runners a grand tour of our fine city. Runners start at the Center for Health and Wellness on Poplar Street before heading downtown to the historic courthouse square. After winding through scenic Central Park, the runners then hit the pavement of the Murray State University's beautiful campus. The runners continue the race on the west side of the city, where they pass through various residential and commercial neighborhoods before returning to Murray-Calloway County Hospital to finish the race. The route stays fairly flat and offers plenty of scenery along the way.
