The Half Madness Half Marathon is a great race to bring the whole family. Starting in beautiful downtown Batavia, spectators will be able to see their runner at least four times within a 5 minute walk from the start line. Cheer your runner on at the start, take a short walk to mile 4, scream some more at mile 7, then yell loudly at the finish…..all within a quarter mile radius! Our start/finish line is great for kids. It includes a park with playground, a small lake to rent paddle boats, and topped off with the best post-race party in the business. Additionally, we are located in the heart of downtown Batavia, adjacent to many restaurants and shops. This year we will also once again feature our Northwestern Medicine Cheer Zone where friends and family can make signs to take with them on the course as they cheer on their runner. We provide the markers and poster, you provide the inspiration!!!
