*****ATTENTION ALL 2022 SCRANTON HALF MARATHON PARTICIPANTS****
With race plans moving along as anticipated, we wanted to provide a heads up on this year's key health and safety protocols so far from the Scranton Half Marathon committee. Please note that as this is still a fluid situation; safety protocols are subject to change and/or expand.
To PICK UP race packet, participants must:
A) Provide proof of Covid-19 vaccination OR
B) Show a negative Covid-19 test within 72 hours of race time.
If a friend or family member is to be sent to pick up the race packet, the proctor must show proof of A) or B) in reference to the participant.
Spectators: Spectators are allowed into the stadium but are highly encouraged to wear masks during the duration of the event.
Kid's 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.
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).
**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.
