The 2019 Danville Half Marathon, presented by URW Community Federal Credit Union, features a beautiful route along the Dan River, beginning and ending in Danville's historic River District. Proceeds from the race will benefit the Children's Miracle Network. The race is run during the annual River District Festival - after the race, stay for a day of family fun and entertainment in the River District!
The course begins at Main Street Plaza, near JTI Fountain. The first few miles take runners down Memorial Drive and across the Robertson Bridge, featuring beautiful views of the Dan River and the new YMCA. After coming off the bridge the course then joins the scenic Riverwalk Trail for the remainder of the race, eventually looping back to a fantastic finish on the Martin Luther King Memorial Bridge. There are a couple of hills near the beginning of the race, but the course is otherwise extremely flat and fast.
Online registration closes at 4 p.m., the day before the race. There is no day-of-race registration.
