Kona Novi Half Marathon in one Month!

A run around Island Lake - so fun!
One of the races I've been waiting for - Kona Running Company is finally offering a half marathon distance, the Novi Half Marathon.  It's my favorites distance, and you know, it's no secret that I love their race management style.  Here's some of the details of this upcoming inaugural race:
  • They will be offering a half marathon, 10k, 5k and 1 mile distance. 
  • The half will run through Novi, South Lyon and Wixom - pretty cool!
  • It will be on paved roads and country roads(half) and you will get nice views of Island Lake on the half and 10k.
  • There is a time limit of 3 hours, 20 minutes(15 minute pace) so walkers are welcome!
  • All finishers will cross the 50 yard line at the South Lyon East High School field which is where they will start as well - always a great way to finish.
  • This race is NOT part of the Grand Slam series
  • All finishers will receive a tech shirt
  • All half and 10k finishers will receive a medal
Here's a look at the bling:

Another Kona medal to add to the list - Half/10k only

Here's also a look at the courses for each race.  Don't let the elevation chart fool you, this is NOT a hilly race.  In fact, I would consider this a PR race for someone looking to PR.
Half - flat and fast
10k course
5k course
So what do you think?  Come join the fun and run Kona Running Company's newest race, the Inaugural Novi Half Marathon.  I can't wait to see what it's like.  I hope to see you out there.
