Date Set for 2nd Annual Half Marathon and New 5KSeptember 16, 2014
Mark your calendars for Saturday, March 21, 2015 for the 2nd annual Newberry Half Marathon!
Those that ran our inaugural half know that this is a high-quality event focusing on runner satisfaction while making a positive contribution to the local community. Again we will have great race support, cool finisher medals, high quality awards and shirts etc. Scroll down if you you’d like to check out the photos from last year’s race on our Facebook page.
In order to maintain this high level of quality for our runners REGISTRATION IS CAPPED AT 600 PARTICIPANTS for the half marathon. Last year at our inaugural event had 300 participants and this year, based on the positive feedback, we hope to double that…and are actually planning on selling out.
Additionally, we are adding a USATF certified 5K in addition to the half marathon (watch for details).
