Towpath Half Marathon

The opening race of the Towpath Trilogy

We know you’ve been training hard and looking forward to this spring tradition on the Towpath Trail.  Your health and safety as well as those of the volunteers, spectators, and the community at large is our utmost concern. As we did with the Towpath Marathon in October, we will be following the guidance from both state and federal agencies on the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) situation as well as the CDC’s guidelines covering events of this nature.

As a small non-profit, this event is a fundraiser that allows Canalway Partners to continue to build and advocate for the Towpath Trail, its feeder trails, and park amenities. Whether this is your first event with us, or you take part in the Towpath Trilogy every year, know that you are supporting those developments with your race entry.

Featuring Half Marathon and 5 Mile Race Lengths (both in-person and virtual).
