6th Annual Gettysburg Blue-Gray Half Marathon
October 23, 2016 Gettysburg, PA
Enjoy running 13.1 miles that wind through one of America's most historic areas, Gettysburg PA. The battle of Gettysburg symbolized the breach between North and South, and also marked the turning point of the war and the return to a single United States of America. The Blue-Gray Half Marathon is also a unique competition between runners representing the North and South. Get more information on this one-of-a-kind Half Marathon event here.
New for 2016 - We are excited to move the course to travel through the storied battlefields of Gettysburg. The half marathon will spend 1/4 of the route passing through the East Cavalry Fields portion of the battlefield. We are also adding a beer garden to post race festivities!.
The Gettysburg Gateway 5K was added to Race Weekend in 2012 and winds through the historic streets of Gettysburg. A fun, fast race for runners of all abilities! In 2013, a hand cycle criterium was added on Saturday to support our charity partner, the Paralyzed Veterans of America.
So, whether you are a first-time runner or a seasoned veteran, this Half Marathon set against the history of Gettysburg gives you a unique opportunity to challenge yourself.
Registration starts on May 1, 2016.
