Thank you for all of the support at the Aurelio’s Pizza Frankfort Half Marathon!

A special thank you to all of the volunteers who made the race possible. You guys rock! And another thank you to all of our sponsors!

The final thank you goes to the runners of the Half. You are the reason we all do this!

About This Event

The Aurelio’s Pizza Frankfort Half Marathon begins and ends in the beautiful historic district of downtown Frankfort. The race commences right outside the door of Running Excels on the Old Plank Trail and continues westward. After 2.7 miles of running on the scenic, tree-lined Old Plank Trail, the racers turn off into the Hickory Creek Forest Preserve. The rolling hills of the forest preserve provide a picturesque tour for the runners as they reach the halfway and turn-around point in the race. The runners then proceed back through the forest preserve and to the Old Plank Trail for their final journey towards the finish line and the post-race party on the Breidert Green.


A special thanks to all of our Sponsors:
