Description

The Mushroom Cap Half Marathon and Shroomie Relay explores Kennett Square's landmarks, unique neighborhoods, and growing commerce while taking runners on a picturesque journey throughout The Mushroom Capital of the world. Participants love racing through the beauty of Kennett Square in November, one of the best times to visit with amazing views and beautiful fall colors filling the city. 

The Mushroom Cap Half Marathon & Shroomie Relay aren’t your average races. They are the perfect combination of running and fun - ridiculous fun. On race day, runners from all over will descend on Kennett Square to sweat it out over a day filled with yoga, running, and of course, one heck of an awesome party.  

There is no better way to celebrate your run than by dancing in the street, killer music, delicious food, and local hops!

From the runner swag, to the course, to the themed aid stations...The Mushroom Cap Half Marathon celebrates you!
