Half Marthon 2-Person Relay

We will be once again, offering a 2-person relay to our runners.  Runners are responsible for their own transportation to and from the half way exchange point.  Please note, the 1st runner will be running a bit longer than half of the 13.1 miles, due to safety of the runners and having a safe exchange point.  The exchange will take place near Mile Marker 8 and Water Stop 4.  Space is limited to 50 teams.

Kids Fun Run

The Kids Fun Run will run BEFORE the Half Marathon and 5K!  Bring the whole family for a great fun filled day of activities!  Kids Run to start at 8:45AM.  All Kids Fun Run participants will receive a kids race day shirt & medal.  Runners need to be in 6th grade & younger to participate in the Kids Fun Run.  Parents are welcome to run along with the kids.
