Fourth Annual Heartland Half Marathon and 5K


 The half marathon race features a great course that starts in the shadow of the Jasper Train Depot and finishes at Dave Buehler Plaza. This is a hilly course that is fairly challenging. The 5K will begin at the same time as the half marathon, but the course will split. The day also will include a Heartland Team Challenge – a four-person relay race – and a Kids Fun Run. 

The event will include medals and additional gifts for half marathon participants, chip timing for runners, well-marked routes, packet giveaways, water and gatorade stops, snacks at the finish, and perofrmance shirts. Proceeds from the event will be given to the Phillip R. Dawkins Heart and Vascular Center at Memorial Hospital. Funds from the Kids Run will benefit Girls on the Run Serving Dubois County.
