Tennessee > Haunted Half Marathon & Boo to Brew 4-Person Relay
Kingsport, TN • Saturday, October 27, 2012 • Course Map
The Haunted Half Marathon, on Halloween weekend, features a "wicked fast" course with very little elevation change. Now set for its fourth annual running -- the 2011 race saw just over 640 runners cross the finish line -- the half marathon is all about fun with costume contests and music and spooky decorations along the course.
The course is centered in downtown Kingsport with a double loop course which takes the runners by all the sights and sounds at least twice. If you're not up for a half marathon you can form a 4-person relay team and enter the Boo to Brew Relay. The race is tied into a downtown "pub crawl" which takes place in the evening after the half marathon with drink specials, bands, and even a Trunk or Treat for kids.
If you're looking for a "cozier" event without all the big city hassles, but with a big-time atmosphere, this is the half marathon for you. It's also a perfect race if you are chasing that half marathon PR. The course is flat and fast!
