Introducing The Chisholm Trail Half Marathon

The Chisholm Trail Half Marathon is nothing to balk at. The speed will challenge you. The course will test your endurance. Running through the Delano Historic district and downtown Wichita, this 13.1-mile course shares the first loop of the marathon and has its own finish on the Douglas Bridge, the same avenue that Jessie Chisholm drove his cattle down and Wyatt Earp patrolled.

The Chisholm Trail Half Marathon is a USATF certified course. It shares the start line with the Chisholm Trail full marathon located in the Historic Delano District. If you’re looking for a half PR or running your first half, the Wichita Chisholm Trail Half Marathon will not disappoint. Both the runner and the spectator will be thrilled with the six-turn course and fast downhill finish.

A half marathon will test your mettle. It will test your stamina both physically and mentally. The only question left is, when are you going to sign up? We say do it now—and start training.
