* New this year - due to road construction, the Tryon Half Marathon has a new route *

The Tryon Half Marathon is a one-of-a-kind course consisting of partly paved and partly gravel surfaces that meander alongside a river through beautiful horse country.  The course is mainly flat with some sloping hills.

Immerse yourself in the vibrant spirit of this wonderful mountain community as you pass locals, enthusiastic volunteers and fellow runners along your journey and bask in the warmth of knowing that you are helping to serve neighbors in need in Polk County, as the race proceeds benefit Outreach's food pantry.

After conquering the course, a delightful surprise awaits at the finish line – an indulgent breakfast spread that will be sure to satisfy your post-run cravings.  Breakfast casseroles made by local volunteers, baskets of bagels, muffins, fruit and other delicacies will be sure to replenish your energy and reward your accomplishments.  

Race packets may be picked up Friday, November 17, from 4:30-6:30pm or on race day from 6:30am-7:30am at the cabin located in Harmon Field.  Same day registration will be $80 for the half marathon and $35 for the 5K.  Please note all packets must be picked up in person.

Our course will be open from 8:00 am until 11:30 am. Please be sure you can complete the race in the 3.5 hour time limit. 

Race shirts are unisex sizing and only available for half marathon participants. The shirts will be ordered Friday, November 3rd.  Please register by Thursday November 2nd to be guaranteed a t-shirt. Race shirts can be exchanged for a different size, or picked up after the race provided there are any additional available.  If you do not want a shirt, please choose that option during registration. 

All finishers will receive a commemorative Finisher's Medal.  The Awards Ceremony for the 5K will begin at 10:00AM and the Awards Ceremony for the half marathon will begin at 11:00AM.  Both awards ceremonies will take place near the picnic shelter.  Awards will go to top Overall Male & Female, Master's Male & Female.
