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!
We reimagined the Harrisburg Marathon event in 2015 and were met with rave reviews from new runners and seasoned marathoners alike. 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 completely redesigned 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.
