Parks Half Marathon – September 13, 2020 @ 6:45am

Updated July 13, 2020

While we were hopeful that we would be able to run the 2020 Parks Half Marathon & Relay, it is simply no longer a possibility. Permits are currently not being issued and there remain no clear guidelines to guarantee a safe environment for all runners and volunteers during this pandemic, leaving us with no other responsible option but to cancel this year's event.  

On a brighter note, REGISTRATION IS OPEN for the 2020 **VIRTUAL** Parks Half Marathon, which will allow you to complete your 13.1 miles on your own in a socially distant and responsible manner. Alternatively you can choose to run the race with a partner as part of our virtual relay option! All participants in the virtual race will receive a "groovy" finishers medal and premium, including both runners in the virtual relay. Registration for the virtual half marathon is $25 for individual runners and $40 for the relay.

MCRRCParks 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.
