Parks Half Marathon: One of The Most Beautiful Courses in The Mid-Atlantic Region

Welcome to Parks Half Marathon, one of the most beautiful USATF certified courses in the Mid-Atlantic region!

Our race begins just before sunrise on a scenic Montgomery County road and quickly transitions into a tour of beautiful Rock Creek Park. As you run through the park, you’ll experience the sun rising through the tree cover and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature. Mile markers help keep you on track and we also have an excellent pace team ready to help you reach your goals if you’d like.

Our thoughtfully placed hydration stations, complete with awesome volunteers will keep you hydrated and motivated. Everyone always loves our FREE, high quality race photos so be sure to wear a smile along the course because we will have photographers along the way capturing race memories.

At the finish, catch up with your friends to exchange race stories while enjoying an awesome spread of fresh fruit, pizza and egg souffle compliments of one of Montgomery County’s favorite local restaurants, Mamma Lucia’s.

Parks will be on Sunday, September 11. Register now so that you don’t miss out!
