Offering three event distances with staggered start times:
7:15 AM = Marathon | 8:00 AM = Half Marathon | 8:15 AM = 5K
In 2020, we introduced the marathon distance to the Fair on the Square Half Marathon to provide runners with a marathon opportunity during COVID times. The marathon sold at 150 participants representing 21 states. Because of the success, we will offer the marathon distance again in 2021!
The Fair on the Square Marathon, Half Marathon & 5K Presented by Hendricks Regional Health is located on the beautiful Danville Courthouse Square. As the kickoff event to the Tri-Kappa's Fair on the Square festival, runners get to enjoy the benefits and festivities of a traditional small-town offerings and presentation. So much so that Hollywood was onsite last year to film the movie Mayberry the week prior to our event. That is what you can expect when you run with us in 2021.
