Steam Train Half Marathon and Relay

Saturday, October 26th, 2019 Half Marathon (13.1 miles)

Relay (Leg 1 - 8 miles, Leg 2 - 5.1 miles)

Runners race the train while families and friends can ride the train and cheer on the runners. Runners, fans, and the train leave the station together, meet up at the relay exchange point, and then race each other to the finish line! Who will get there first?!

There are approximately 2800 Half Marathons in the USA, and the Steam Train Half is the only Half Marathon in the United States where participants race a Steam Train and make spectators and family a part of the action!
