Parks Half Marathon – September 26, 2021 @ 6:45am
Registration for the 2021 race starts May 1, 2021!
Our intention is to hold the 2021 Parks Half Marathon and open registration around May 1, 2021. However, we must be able to secure health, park and road permits to do so, which is extremely challenging due to COVID-19. Please be aware that until all final permits are in hand, race details are subject to change or cancellation depending on county recommendations surrounding the pandemic. In addition to many changes that will be necessary to adhere to health & safety protocols, our permits will also require us to limit the number of participants in this year's race. We hope to be able to provide information on the 2021 race soon.
Parks Half Marathon continues the tradition of success starting with the Marathon in the Parks for competitive runners and for the Montgomery County parks system that the race showcases. Created by the Montgomery County Road Runners Club (MCRRC), the event showcases one of the most extensive metropolitan parks systems in the country while providing runners with a competitive, top-notch race.
