Run Mahomet

Are you ready to Run Mahomet?

Second time I’ve run this half marathon and really enjoyed it! A simple, low-cost, straight forward HM for a good cause. Terrific organization by a first class race director. Can be very warm, but enthusiastic water tables every mile along the way are a big help. I enjoyed the course through the corn and soybean fields. The finish on the high school track is a blast. Strongly recommend this race on its own or as a good tune up for fall HMs or marathons.
