The Half Marathon will offer 8 different water stops along the 13.1mile route for runner’s safety and convenience. Each stop will offer Water, Gatorade, Ice, Petroleum Jelly and Portable Restrooms. Volunteers will be on site with radio and cell phone communications so please ask for assistance if you need anything at one of our 8 rest stops.

The Tyler Half Marathon & 5K will have a wave start system in place to start the 2018 event. Runners will be seeded into groups according to your estimated pace. Each group will be staged in a holding corral prior to the start of their group. Inside each corral runners will find, portable restrooms, Gatorade Thirst Quencher and Water.
Reminder to Runners: The chip-timing system will not record a starting time for a runner until that runner has crossed the timing mats at the start line. Time spent waiting to cross the start line is NOT included in the scored finish time for a runner.
