Description

The 4th edition of the Scranton Half Marathon will take place on Sunday, April 2nd, 2017, beginning and ending in Valor Credit Union Field at Memorial Stadium.

Proceeds from the 2017 event will benefit the continued development of the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail.

 

CHANGES FOR 2017

Personalized Bibs

  • For the 2017 you will be asked a question of what name/nickname you want to have on your race bib.  These will be read through and sensored, so please keep it clean. Anyone who requests something inappropriate will only receive their first name on the bib.  We like to have fun and want to keep this event fun for you so please play nice!

The TEAM Competition

  • We had great feedback with the Family Team competition started last year.  We heard what your thoughts, and the consensus was to turn it into a general team competition so you could team up with friends and family alike.  The process hasn't changed:
  1. When signing up, create a team.
  2. Make sure each member of your team uses the same team name when registering (case sensitive).
  3. You must have at least 3 members on your team to score.  You may have as many members on your team as you want.
  4. Fastest combined time of three fastest members will count towards your score.
  5. Fastest team will be honored at the after-party.

 

Refund Policy Remains!

  • From September 1st until December 31st a full refund will be given.
  • From January 1st until February 28th a 25% refund will be given.
  • Beginning March 1st, no refunds will be given.
