"2nd Half" - Half Marathon

In 2025 we are offering a choice to run the "2nd Half" of the marathon course which takes participants past the iconic Mercedes Benz Stadium; through the Atlanta University Center consisting of four historically black colleges and universities; and south into Cheney Stadium for a run around Atlanta's Olympic practice surface and under the Olympic rings before heading back to the finish line.

The 2nd Half will begin after the Half Marathon & Marathon races.

Awards for overall male, female and non-binary will be awarded, however age group awards will not be available to "2nd Half" participants.

Those attempting to run the full marathon by combining the two half marathons will be disqualified.
