(9-20-17) The new map (see above) shows the Grand Lake Half and Full Marathon courses together.

A few key notes about traveling on Saturday:

  • Rt 127 will be closed from Celina south to 703 6:30am until approx 9:30am
    Guadalupe / Southland will be closed 7:15am until approx 11am
  • Rt 703 between St Marys and Celina will have the West Bound Lane closed and all traffic will be required to proceed East until reaching a cross road to get up to Rt 29.

It is suggested that these areas be avoided if possible and that drivers in these areas should drive slowly and seek assistance from local law enforcement stationed on the course.
