2017 Harrisburg Marathon

Harrisburg Marathon will take you on a thrilling journey through beautiful Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Our fast, flat course is a Boston qualifier that’s sure to give plenty of runners a great PR!

Dubbed as a “mini-Boston” this energetic race filled Second Street with people cheering, music playing, the energy of what has been called “Restaurant Row” as runners of our completely redesigned course round their way onto Second Street towards the new finish line at Locust.

The Marathon course better integrates the city into the fun. 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.

NOT RUNNING? COME TO THE DOWNTOWN MARATHON RED BLOCK PARTY!

Don’t miss the third annual Marathon Red Block Party sponsored by the Harrisburg Downtown Improvement District! We redesigned the Harrisburg Marathon course to integrate the event with the community that hosts it. Celebrate our “mini-Boston” and cheer on finishers in a huge downtown celebration!
