Please join us for the 4th annual Crossroads Half Marathon race on a fast and relatively flat course. This is an informal no-frill event.

Sunday, April 16, 2023, at 8 a.m.
Crossroads Half Marathon hosted by Crossroads Running Club

Cost: $4.99*
We’ve been trying to host this race for free but unfortunately we are unable to continue to do so. We’ve encountered too many no-shows and last-minute dropouts which raise our costs substantially and unnecessarily. We could never thank our sponsors and volunteers enough for all their help over the past couple of years. 

*$4.99 until 3/17 at 11:59 pm;  $9.99 until 3/31, and $14.99 until 4/15 or whenever we reach the capacity.


If you have COVID-19 or any variants of COVID or related symptoms, please be considerate to others and STAY HOME. We ask that you follow current COVID-19 guidelines set forth by the Federal and State government.

It is a 3.6 mile long and 10-foot wide, paved asphalt tree-lined trail. The course will be marked. We will also have a copy of the course map posted in the Start area.
