Country Half Marathon + 5K

Come for the race - stay for the party!

As winter winds down and we start eyeing the distance running race calendar remember cool weather and fall leaves make October the best time of year to run a long race. The quiet country roads and the occasional runner wearing cowboy hats and vests make this a super-fun, low-pressure event. Possibly the best event to be your first half marathon anywhere!
