I know you are just dying to find out what the Run Like a Mother Half Marathon course looks like. I just got the scoop from race director, Joe Bainbridge.
He has posted the final course for the half marathon in Lodi on Mapmyrun.com and I am sharing with you here.

The course has now been set for the 2011 Lodi Mother’s Day Half Marathon and 5K run. Located in the Scenic Lodi Valley, the area sets the perfect stage for a beautiful Mother’s Day running event.
Note the “valley” location. Perhaps we should have called the run the “Vertical Limit, Lung Buster Run”. Ok, so blame the race director for that.
The course is a very challenging run course that will greet runners with a challenging hill at the half mile point and the hills just keep on coming.
Hills are pretty much what we have here in the Scenic Lodi Valley which I guess explains why we call it that!
Stay tuned for maps and vertical elevation maps to get posted on this site. The team has made the race director go out with his GPS unit and run the course as punishment for picking the course.

Its true that this will be “one mother of a run” with hills and country roads a significant part of the course.
