Time8:00AM EDT - 11:00AM EDT
|Price increases September 24, 2017 at 11:59pm EDT|
The 2017 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 2017 half marathon course is similar to last year's popular route. 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 crossing the bridge, runners stay on roads for another 1 1/2 miles. The course then joins the scenic Riverwalk Trail near Dan River Church for the remainder of the race, eventually looping back to a fantastic finish on the 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.
Early packet pickup is Friday, October 20th from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. at The Brick Running & Tri Store, 410-A Main St., Danville, VA.
Race day packet pickup is at the start area, beginning at 7:00 a.m.

Water & gatorade will be provided at approximately every 2 miles, & GU will be available midway through the race.
