Half Marathon Course Description:
This scenic 13.1 mile long Tour de Corvallis is mostly flat with two slow gradual climbs, and consequently two gradual descents. The entire course is on paved roads, sidewalk and multi-use paths. Turn-by-turn instructions are below.
The run starts inside Reser Stadium on the field and the first 2 miles are on the Oregon State University campus. After mile 2, you’ll head to north Corvallis and Walnut Blvd. At mile 4 there is a small hill followed by an approximately 1.3 mile gradual climb to the top of Witham hill. This climb gets steeper as you get towards the top at mile 5.8. You’ll then hit the fastest part of the course on the 1.4 mile gradual downhill from MLK park to 53rd St. Next you’ll head out to the scenic Bald Hill nature park and around to the iconic Covered Bridge before making your way back to campus and the finish. Overall, this course has approximately 380ft of gain and loss with the largest hill of the day occurring before the halfway mark. There are 4 aid stations on course approximately every 3 miles. Aid stations will be stocked with water and electrolyte beverage. There are no calories on course so bring your own.
