The Ocala Horse Country Half Marathon runs through the renowned horse country of Marion County! This year you can Choose from either a 13.1 Half Marathon distance or a 5K distance. This event will begin behind the Paddock Mall, on Hwy 200 next to the Sears Automotive Center parking lot. The Ocala Half Marathon has secured its place as one of the country’s most scenic runs. Drawing from over 40+ states and seven countries last year says something good is happening in Ocala. The half marathon is a combination of southern hospitality and a stunning course that you cannot find anywhere else in Florida.

                    ***RELAY TEAM DIVISION*** is available in 2020.  Teams can be from 2 to 4 persons. The Half Marathon Relay combines the excitement of the half marathon with the camaraderie of a team relay event. There will be 3 Relay Exchange points on the course. Each leg will be approximately 3.3 miles with the last leg being 3.2 miles.  We will provide transportation to and from the start area and timing points.  Team Runners that have completed their portion will wait at the Relay Coral area, which is just outside the finish line to join the last Team Runner for the run in through the finish line.   It is strongly recommended that you join up and finish together to ensure you all receive your participant medals and have the opportunity to have your photo taken as you cross the finish line.

The race weekend will kick-off on Saturday with Early Packet Pickup held at the race location at Paddock Mall, in Ocala, FL. Sunday brings in the Ocala Horse Country 5K, Half Marathon and Relay Team races, music, and awards . There is are two distances, no hard rules, attitudes, or committees.
