The Scream! Half Marathon

July 9 @ 7:00 am - 11:00 am


The Scream Half Marathon Logo - 2022
After 10 years of using the same course and requiring runners to ride on two separate shuttles, we are changing things up for the start of our second decade.  What that does mean?

A new course inside the Wilson Creek Recreation Area – this will be an out-and-back entirely along the river with a 2% elevation gain going out and and a 2% descent coming back.  It’s not the quite the downhill of the original course but your quads will thank you later.

While spiraling costs and challenges on the former course has forced our hand on this, we view this a new chapter in the legend of The Scream and a less complicated day for our loyal Scream participants.

Update (April 6, 2022) – The National Forest Service has asked the race start at 7:00 AM in order to avoid crowds in the Wilson Creek Recreation Area.

Race Date:  Saturday, July 9, 2022 – 7:00 AM

Race Cap: 350
