Runners of all levels can go for their personal bests when the University of Charleston Honors College sponsors a half-marathon and 5K run on Sunday, April 7, 2024.

 

Half-marathons have become increasingly popular in recent years, with an estimated 2 million people finishing a half-marathon annually in the United States alone. The median age of half-marathon runners is 37.2 years old, making it one of the most accessible races to all ages.

 

The UC event is designed to be inclusive, welcoming individuals of all fitness levels. The half marathon begins at 8:30 a.m., and the 5K starts at 8:45 a.m. The starting point will be on Cherokee Avenue in front of Geary Student Union at the University of Charleston. Registration is now open at https://register.chronotrack.com/r/76576

 

Registration for the half-marathon starts at $65; student fee at $50. For the 5K, the registration fee starts at $25. Students can register for $20. Proceeds from the event go directly to supporting UC student initiatives, including educational programs and extracurricular activities.

 

Awards are hand-thrown pottery mugs from Summer Hollow Pottery. The company also created the finisher medals.

 

Sponsorship opportunities are available to support the event. For more information, contact halliechillag@ucwv.edu or karafisher@ucwv.edu.
