Parks Half Marathon Gives Back!

Dear Parks Friends,

You probably already know that the Parks Half Marathon is the best value in town.  For just $69, you get to run a half marathon through some of the most beautiful park land in the county AND receive a beautiful finisher’s medal, a commemorative Under Armour technical shirt, and a finisher’s premium — all on top of a fantastic finisher’s festival with great food and music (and possible sighting of ME).

BUT FOR THE NEXT 72 HOURS ONLY, Parks will donate $5 for the first 300 NEW REGISTRATIONS, to one of our 2017 Philanthropic Partners (listed below)!

Need one more small push?Register by August 15th in order to get a personalized bib for this year’s race! Speaking of “push,” don’t you think I should get my OWN personalized bib to wear around my neck instead of this embarrasing sign? 

So make your registration count & signup today!

Yours in philanthropy,

Dixon, Official Spokesdog of the Parks Half Marathon

22 Too Many – Everyday approximately 22 military service members take their own lives, also leaving their families to suffer from the grief of losing a loved one. Not only is the organization committed to increasing public awareness of PTS, they are also devoted to honoring the memory of the fallen as well as providing support to the families. We will support these families by remembering their loved one and providing them with a Parks medal if you choose to run in honor of a fallen hero. You may signup to do this at packet pickup on September 9th at RnJ Sports.
