This event WILL be back for a fourth year in 2018 and we’re going for two days in a row again! That’s right, two separate half marathons, one on Saturday 1/6/18 and a second on Sunday 1/7/17. Register here and follow the Facebook page here!
Burn off those holiday calories, make some friends, have a great time!
The Raccoon Mountain Marathon, Half Marathon and Relay training plan calls for a 13 mile run for anyone training for the marathon. We thought it would be more fun to do a race-type event, so we’re turning it into a free half marathon!
The course is a multi-loop/out-and-back type of thing where you’ll pass the “aid station” more than once. We’ve got drinks and snacks covered, and at the finish line you’ll find an all-you-can-eat cereal buffet, including cold cereals, oatmeal, and yogurt with all the toppings! Lucky for you, your medal is a giant coffee mug that can hold all of these things!
There is no time limit, so walkers are welcome! We’d also love some volunteers to come ring a cowbell, give out high fives, and enjoy the camaraderie!
This is a no t-shirt, no pressure, no whining, no time limit event. If you want to run fast and treat this like a race – go for it! If you want to walk the whole thing – you can do that too! We will have tables to put your fuel/drinks out, we’ll hold your layers as you take them off when you warm up, and we’ll have some cheerleaders.
