Half-Marathon (21.1 KM)
The half-marathon starts at St. Lawrence College. Runners head up to Montreal Road (traffic will be blocked off), and continue to McConnell Avenue. The route will swing around Cotton Mill Street and join the bike path at Edward Street. The run continues along the bike path beside the canal, through the power dam grounds, until the turnaround just past the intersection of Vincent Massey Drive and slightly before the east parking lot for Guindon Park. The route back follows the bike path all the way back to the finish line at St. Lawrence College.
This year, the half-marathon will be capped at 150 participants. We are committed to providing the best possible environment for our participants and volunteers. We anticipate we will sell out, so please register early!

Race Kit Pickup
Race kits are to be picked up the morning of the race at the gym of St. Lawrence College starting at 7:30 AM.
The Run to endMS does not wish to discriminate against slower runners. We are a volunteer organization and some of the race-day costs we incur are paid for by the hour. We wish to provide as much support as possible to our runners and ensure a safe environment. At this time, we are unable to support runners with an expected finish time beyond 12:30 PM. This equates to a half-marathon time of 3 hours and 30 minutes. Runners who arrive after the official cutoff time, may send us their time for an unofficial finish time, and we will be happy to provide them with a medal.
The race will start at 9 AM from St. Lawerence College, Cornwall.
There will be aid stations approximately every 3 km along the route. These aid stations will have water and Gatorade. Some stations will have gels. There will also be several Porta Potties located along the route. Please see the table below for locations.

Half-Marathon Training Plan
Here's are a good basic training plan adapted from Hal Higdon.
All athletes must run the complete length of the route. Where the route is on the shared recreation path, runners must stay on the right hand side of the pathway throughout.The approach to the finish line will be well marked.
Athletes shall not receive or collect refreshment or water from a place other than the official stations, except where provided for medical reasons from or under the direction of race officials.
For the safety of all our participants, running strollers and pets are not permitted on the course.
