6th Annual Veterans Marathon presented by Three Rivers Running Company


Come experience the challenge and excitement of running the Veterans Marathon, Half-Marathon or 5K and do so in honor of America's veterans. You'll be glad you did.

When registering for this event, please make sure you select the correct event. There are 3 events: the Marathon, the Half-Marathon, and the 5K.

Once again for 2014, we will be using the IPICO BibRing system. Runners only need to attach the bib number to the front of their shirts. Please do not bend them or wad them up which could damage the chip on the backs. BibRings are disposable and do not need to be collected after the race. In other words: minimal pre-race handling, no post-race handling and ease of use for participants. This system is the same one they used at the 2012 Marathon Olympic Trails in Texas.

The Marathon course will be 2 loops of the first half.

NOTE ***** Marathon is USATF Certified IN14014TDK
NOTE ***** 1/2 Marathon is USATF Certified IN14015TDK
NOTE ***** 5k is USATF Certified IN13019TDK

We are a sanctioned USATF Marathon, this means any U.S. or World Records as well Boston Qualifiers will be recognized.
