VIDEO: Borgess Half Marathon sees highest number of participants yet


KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- The Borgess Half Marathon, a tradition at the Borgess Run for the Health of It for more than a decade, saw record numbers in 2012. 

The first 3.5 miles of this USATF certified course are identical to the Kalamazoo Marathon.  Half marathoners then go east on South Street and about a mile later are back on the marathon course, which they follow until the finish line, where Tent City awaits, with food, refreshments and entertainment for the whole family into Sunday afternoon.

The number of participants in the Borgess Half Marathon will be limited to 3,000 for the 2013 race.
