ODDyssey Half Marathon Official Race Course

ODDyssey Race Course!

The course is truly unique as it is the only race in Philadelphia that highlights so much of the beauty of Fairmount Park.  Our beautiful course is so tranquil, it is hard to believe it is in the middle of one of the biggest and most vibrant Cities in the United States.
•Begin in front of historic Memorial Hall, site of the Centennial Exhibition of 1876.
•Race through the natural beauty of the Fairmount Horticultural Center and the Belmont Plateau
•Wind past Century old mansions and vast open ballfields in East Fairmount Park.
•Take in the beauty of the stunning Schuylkill River along both Kelly Drive and West River Drive crossing at the historic Falls Bridge.
•Finish back at Memorial Hall for a post race bash.


Here is a link to a mapmyrun version of the course. It is mostly flat with 2 hills. 
It's not official/exact, but it should give you an idea on elevation.
