About The Race

The half marathon is endurance, stamina, and pushing yourself just a little harder. It’s also freedom, happiness—and that amazing feeling when you cross the finish line. Look around: for 13.1 miles, you’re athletes, role models, a community, a force. Please note, this course is not certified by USATF and only certified service animals are allowed.
