Half Marathon: Course


The 2019 course has been updated slighty from last year to accomodate the addition of the 10-Kilometer race.  

There are three changes from last year:
1) Runners will go down Otsego St on the way to the bridge
2) Runners will run the VAMC portion in reverse
3) Runnes will pass Concord Point Lighthouse near the end.

Finisher Premium & Awards



Half Marathon - Finisher Premium

Th first 1200 runners to register for the half marathon will receive a premium.  


Half Marathon - Finisher Medal

All half marathon finishers will receive a medal. 

The 2019 medal design features the Concord Point Light House, one of the oldest lighthouses on the east coast.


The chart below lists the awards to be given within each category.  Gun time (clock time) will be used for Overall and Masters (40+) awards.  Net time (the time recorded by the timing chip) will be used for all age-group scoring and awards.

There will be NO duplication of awards. No double-dipping. If the Overall winners (top 3 male/female) are over 40 they will be dropped from the Masters (40+) group awards. The Overall winners and Masters (40+) winners will also be dropped from their respective age categories.

Awards will be handed out the day of the race only. No awards will be mailed.  If there is an unforeseen circumstance that prevents awards from being picked up on race day, awards may be picked up at a designated location within two weeks.

To make this event even more special, the top three overall male and female runners will receive a hand carved decoy from a local artisan.
After all, Havre De Grace is the “Decoy Capital of the World.”
