2020 Scranton Half Marathon, presented by Geisinger, Moving to a Virtual Event.

Due to ongoing concerns regarding the safety of holding an in-person race due to the COVID-19 virus, we have decided it is in the best interest of all involved to move the 2020 Scranton Half Marathon to a virtual event.  We appreciate that many of you have put in the training effort to complete this race and would still like you to be able to attain that feat (and receive all the race swag) even if it is in a virtual capacity. Please read the following options on how to proceed with your registration. The event dates will run from October 8th to 12th, 2020.

For participants in Northeast Pennsylvania, all items will be available at the Scranton Running Company to be picked up. If you live outside of NEPA, all items will be shipped to you following the event dates.

All participants who have pre-registered will receive a refund for any amount they paid above the $50 for their respective race. Participants will receive a bib, t-shirt, finisher medal, finisher blanket, and a running gift from our Presenting Sponsor, Geisinger. For participants in Northeast Pennsylvania, all items will be available at the Scranton Running Company to be picked up. If you live outside of NEPA, all items will be shipped to you following the event dates.
