race day:

october 12, 2013

race starts:



You’ll only get one shot at this one – a half marathon and 5K set on the scenic site of the new U.S. 31 highway, and a chance to break in the asphalt before it’s opened to traffic.

You’ll feel the road rise to meet you as you cruise 3.1 or 13.1 miles on the new U.S. 31, affectionately called “the bypass” – but we promise this is one event your whole family won’t want to miss. There is nothing like crossing the finish line of a race, and if you’ve always dreamed of competing in a 5K or a half marathon, the Highway Half is perfect for you.


We’ll have plenty of music on the course and ample water stops. Plus when you get to the finish of both the 5K and the half marathon, you’ll walk away with a Kokomo-themed finisher’s medal.

So what are you waiting for?

It’s time to hit the ground running.

The course


Runners and walkers in both the 5K and the half marathon will start together at Morning Star Church, 2900 E. Markland Ave.
