The all-new Harrisburg Marathon will take you on a thrilling journey through beautiful Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Our fast, flat, newly-designed course is a Boston qualifier that’s sure to give plenty of runners a great PR!
We’ve completely reimagined the Harrisburg Marathon event in 2015. We envision our Marathon as a “mini-Boston” — Second Street lined with people cheering, music playing, the energy of what has been dubbed “Restaurant Row” electrified as runners of our completely redesigned course round their way onto Second Street towards the new finish line at Locust.
We completely redesigned our Marathon course so we could better integrate the city into it. We’ve added new sections that showcase some of Harrisburg’s landmarks like Fort Hunter. We’ve introduced two scenic bridge crossings to integrate our friends on the west shore of the Susquehanna. The crescendo of the new Marathon though, was to move the final mile and finish line right down Second Street to Locust Street —the epicenter of the downtown scene.
