Event Update:

Because of the uncertainty of the current Covid-19 situation,  the Half Note Half Marathon & 5K team has made the difficult decision to cancel the September 13, 2020 event.  The health and safety of our runners, spectators, sponsors and staff is our greatest concern.  It was a extremely difficult decision to make.  We appreciate the support that participants have made towards the Symphony Half Note Marathon & 5K charity.  We will miss everyone this year. Thank you for all your efforts in raising much needed funds for our charity.

We plan to return for a fantastic 2021 event.  Stay safe and healthy!!

We strive to bring a wide variety of musical experiences to the region and help maintain a dynamic and vibrant community for all.

We are extremely grateful for your participation and support of this event which helps us fulfill our mission of Transforming Lives Through Music.

Course Description:

Experience the beauty of southwest Michigan's agricultural heart as you run past fragrant vineyards, hops fields, and rich farmland between Stevensville and Baroda, Michigan.The course starts and ends at the same place, looping around the countryside.

The half-marathon route is mainly flat, but there are some climbs along the way to add some challenge.The 5K route is a great way for both runners and walkers to get some endorphins in early and use that energy throughout the rest of the day!
