HEARTLAND HALF MARATHON:The date for Jasper's sixth annual Heartland Half Marathon is set for Saturday, September 2, 2017 - Labor Day Weekend - at 7:30 A.M. E.T. The race features a great course that starts in the shadow of the Jasper Train Depot along the Patoka River and finishes in the shade at Dave Buehler Plaza just a stone's throw away from the starting line.
This is a hilly course that is fairly challenging, especially at the midway point of the race along St. Charles Street. Some past participants have given us feedback that they enjoy this aspect of challenge; however, others were not prepared. Please be sure to prepare yourself for the midway peaks in the course. After the middle section of the race, the course largely flattens out again on the way to the finish.
HEARTLAND 5K:This race begins at the same time and date as the Half Marathon,Saturday, September 3 at 7:30 A.M. E.T. The Half Marathon and 5K begin the same, but they will split apart very close to the start of the race. Be prepared to follow the volunteers' directions at this split. Like the Half Marathon and all Heartland events, the route will finish along the scenic Jasper Riverwalk.
NEW! HEARTLAND TEAM CHALLENGE:The Heartland Team Challenge is a relay comprised of a 4-person team, and follows the same course as the Heartland Half Marathon.Participants will begin the same time and date as the Heartland Half Marathon and 5K.
