-          Why I run

-          Most memorable race

-          Favorite running story

-          The Colony Half Marathon specific such as about the race, previous experience, etc.

This just in- The Colony Half Marathon 2019 In our 7th year, is now accepting participants. We are looking for the brave, the fierce, the ones that color outside the lines and those that walk to their own drum. We are looking for a few (1500) good women, and men, to take on the elements on October 26th, 2019, and bring home a beautiful medal and a memory that will last a lifetime. Are you ready?

After selling out the last three years, we can’t wait to kick off the 2019 race and plan to make it the best yet. Long sleeve quarter zip jackets will be back. Craft beer.. back. Pizza too. Awesome medals, course, and volunteers, check.

Will you answer the call?
