Thank you for coming to our race page!  We are excited about 2019.

Join us for the 5th annual Suwanee Half Marathon and the newly added Old Town 5k on 02/10/19 presented by Performance Race Services along with the City of Suwanee.  These races will benefit the Suwanee Public Arts program. 

**We are providing special commemorative jackets/pull overs for all those who have supported and run ALL 5 years of the Suwanee Half Marathon. (To be mailed/picked up once final order is submitted with all 5 year runners)

Race Information:


This year's Suwanee Half Marathon will have a course change with the help of all the feedback we have received.  The new course will still start at Suwanee Town Center, bring you up to and down PIB, around George Pierce Park, on the greenway to McGinnis Ferry, BUT we have removed the out and back on McGinnis Ferry / Northholt Parkway. Instead direct you back onto the greenway (going under McGinnis Ferry) to Suwanee Creek Park.  You will then turn around, return back on the greenway, all the way back onto the boardwalk bridge and back to the start by City Hall.  You can see the new course using this link: Suwanee Half Marathon Course

Along with the half marathon, we are excited to announce the addition of a 5k, named Old Town 5k.  This race will start 10 minutes after the half marathon.  The 5k will start on Main Street next to the library.  (This is to reduce any runner flow restrictions going under the train tunnel and to allow for a joint finish line with the half marathon.) The 5k will follow the same first mile of the half, but split off half way up Eva Kennedy onto Brushy Creek Way.  Don't forget to look around about mile 2.25 and enjoy Old Town Suwanee (amazing how much Suwanee has changed) while you return back down main street and back to City Hall.  You can see the course using this link (it does show long but Map My Run does not take the complete tangents):  Old Town 5k Course

**Weather Alternate Half Marathon Route: In case of greenway flooding we will be using our alternate course Suwanee Half Marathon - Weather Alternate Course

Start Times:

The Half Marathon will start at 7:30 AM in front of City Hall and the 5k will start at 7:40 AM on Main Street (across from the library).  For those running the 5k, don't forget to cheer on the half marathon runners as they come by you!
