About This Activity

HALF MARATHON IS NOW SOLD OUT.The last three years have been fantastic, and we're working to make 2013 even better! This is the same beautiful course, the same water stations with Amish children, the same Amish schoolhouse rest stops, plus hot air balloons, larger expo, and so much more for 2013!
Half Marathon SOLD OUT!

We have reached our 1400 runner limit for the half marathon.

5k filling too....

While we have not set a hard cap yet,the 5k continues to grow and grow. We will not overcrowd the course. It is possible we will have to close registrations and will not be able to offer day of race walk-up registrations. Best to sign up sooner rather than later.
