Spectator Viewing Areas 

13.1 miles is a long way, so the runners will need all the encouragement they can get! Whether you are cheering on family or friends, or just want to show your support for the runners, below are some suggested areas to come out and cheer at:

Augusta Common - Start and Finish Line

See your runner off in the morning on the Reynolds Street side of the Augusta Common and congratulate them as they cross the finish line inside the Augusta Common!  While you're waiting for your runner, be sure to enjoy the different vendors and activities in the Common.  After the race, join your runner and enjoy our after party and awards.  Don't forget to stick around to cheer on our future runners for the Medals for Miles fun run!

Broad Street between 7th & 12th 

Artists Row is where it's at. Line up on the south side of Broad Street between 7th and 12th Streets for the best views. While you're at it, take your pick of downtown cafes for your morning cup of joe! 

AU Summerville Campus

Stake out your spot at the top of the hill, one of the most scenic spots on the race course. 

Neptune Dive and Ski/Lake Olmstead Park

Spectators at Neptune Dive and Ski will give the runners the final push they need as they fight to the finish.

The Salvation Army Kroc Center

Give the racers the send off they deserve to begin the last stretch of the race! There's plenty of accessible parking to get in and out to your next location- the finish line! 

The Augusta Sports Council is the local host organization for the Augusta University Half Marathon, 10K & 5K.

The Augusta University Half, 10K & 5K courses are USATF certified and are qualifiers for the AJC Peachtree Road Race!
