Celebrate Spring at a Half Marathon

A half marathon is a mini-version of its counterpart. It's less taxing than a marathon, which means you can do twice as many of them in a season. The half marathon is the fastest-growing distance in the U.S.—with an estimated 1.6 million half marathon finishers in 2012, according to Running USA. These 11 half marathon events, some of which also feature marathons, 5Ks and kids runs, are an eclectic mix of small-town traditional, blown-out country-wide series with impressive swag, and scenic but challenging courses.
