Scranton Half Marathon

APRIL 2 - 3, 2022 •  SCRANTON


Test your mental and physical limits in the Scranton Half Marathon. The annual 13.1-mile foot race energizes Scranton each spring as thousands of runners and walkers take to the streets and trails of Scranton on a spring Sunday morning. Participants truly get a taste of when city meets country as they run through the Scranton neighborhoods, onto the  Lackawanna River Heritage Trail, and then briefly back onto the street to finish on the track inside Valor Stadium. Proceeds from the half marathon go toward the continued development of the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail.


Those who prefer a shorter distance are encouraged to participate in the Scranton 5k, held the Saturday afternoon before the Half Marathon. Test your stamina and do both the 5k and the Half Marathon to complete The Dougherty Double!


Be sure to stop in at the Scranton Running Company for any last-minute race items or a pair of fresh kicks to start next year's training.
