Half Marathoners (8 Miles; 1 loop) and Marathoners (16 miles, 2 or 3 loops)

8 Mile Loop:

8 Mile Loop:

5.3 Mile Loop:

5.3 Mile Loop: (across the Skydance Bridge and back will make this 5.3 miles)

Remember, run by effort and not by pace because the heat WILL affect your pace. Expect a slower goal time. Wear light and breathable clothing.


Bring extra water, powerade, gels and keep in your vehicle at your start location which will double as your water stop & finish line. The bottle fillers on the fountains at the Memorial and Scissortail are working.  We will NOT be providing water stops during this run. 

You must bring your own running hydration system with you during your run. This can be a hand-held water bottle, waist belt or hydration vest/pack.

Your hydration system should allow you to conveniently and comfortably carry water as needed for the duration of your long run. Be aware that most public water fountains will not be operational, so make sure your hydration system has sufficient capacity for the water you will need. For example, If you plan to run for 1 - 2 hours, you may need at least approximately 2 liters of water. The amount of water you actually need will vary based on many factors, so carefully evaluate running conditions and your personal fitness. Also consider bringing electrolyte/salt tablets to consume for longer runs in warmer conditions.


Make sure you are well HYDRATED! Pre-hydrate by drinking water throughout the day before the run. Strenuous running in high temperatures means a great deal of sweating, resulting in high salt losses and electrolyte imbalances. As a result, make sure to start drinking plenty of water and consuming sufficient salt BEFORE your training runs.


This is NOT A CLOSED COURSE - this means you will likely be sharing the streets with normal traffic and sharing the trails with other pedestrians including cyclists.

Maintain physical distancing of at least 6 FEET from other runners and pedestrians. Be mindful of wind direction when running in close proximity to others, and adjust distancing as needed.

On the streets, run on the LEFT SIDE of the street, facing traffic, and not in the middle of the road. When approaching traffic get in a SINGLE FILE LINE with other runners and move to the far left, leaving as much space as possible for traffic. LOOK both ways before running through intersections - don't simply "follow the group."

On the trails, run on the RIGHT SIDE of the trail while leaving space for oncoming pedestrians and cyclists. Do not make abrupt stops and turns - you do not want a cyclist crashing into you from behind.

Let's be courteous with others in our community and respectfully share the roads and trails. The safety of our participants is always our primary concern.

We encourage you to continue to share your pictures and help others stay motivated as well. Don’t forget to use #Landrunners and #RUNtoREMEMBER.
