*****ATTENTION ALL 2022 SCRANTON HALF MARATHON PARTICIPANTS****
In order to participate, we are no longer requiring proof of Covid-19 vaccination or a negative Covid test.
The 9th edition of the Scranton Half Marathon will take place on Sunday, April 3, 2022, beginning and ending in PenFed Credit Union Field at Memorial Stadium. The goal of the race is to provide a superior event highlighting the local area and in doing so, bring increased exposure and revenue for local businesses.
NEW FOR 2022
Please note the new start times for the half marathon run (8:00 AM) and the half marathon walk (6:45 AM).
Kids Fun Runs: Unfortunately, both the 1/4 mile and 1/2 mile kids' runs have been cancelled for the 2022 event out of an abundance of caution.
**Elm Street Cutoff time - In the interest of safety and to allow city streets to reopen as scheduled, the race course will remain open to all participants who reach the Elm Street trailhead of the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail (roughly 7.5 miles) by 10:15 AM. This would be an 18:00 minute per mile pace for runners and a 28:00 minute per mile pace for walkers. Those participants who are unable to meet the 10:15 AM cutoff time will be directed to turn right onto the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail and will not be able to complete the full 13.1 mile course and their finish time will not be recorded.
