The USRA Half Marathon Series is an 23-City Nationwide Half Marathon Series in mid-to-small size markets. Each Series event partners with the Convention & Visitors Bureau, Chamber of Commerce and/or Municipality in that community to conduct a Half Marathon, 5K, and Fun Run. All events are built around community to create a festive atmosphere and a great post race party featuring live music.
In addition to the post race party, other amenities at each race include small expos at the packet pick-up, quality shirts, Half Marathon finisher medallions, chip timing, fast and accurate results, awards three deep in 12 age categories for both Male and Female in the 5K and the Half Marathon. Individual competition is complemented by a Corporate Team Challenge and a chance to run for a charity in our Sanctioned Charity Program.
The Sanctioned Charity Program is a great opportunity to be part of something special. Non-Profit organizations have an opportunity to be listed as a Sanctioned Charity and the runners have the opportunity to directly contribute to those charities during the registration process. The contribution is completely tax deductible and offers runners an opportunity to choose the level of participation and relationship they would like to have with the Charities. Some runners join the Charitable teams and continue to raise money on their own through pledges, additional contributions, etc. while others just make a simple one time contribution to the charity. Regardless, the Sanction Charity Program is the heart of the USRA Half Marathon Series.
Sponsorship opportunities are available for each individual USRA Half Marathon Series Events as well as "Regional" and "National Sponsorships". Please contact USRA Half Marathon Series at USRAHalf@gmail.com.
