Aid stations will be located approximately every two miles.
All half marathon runners have 3:30 hours to complete the course in order to be provided full police protection and aid station support. Those still on the course at this time will be asked to stay to sidewalks and follow traffic rules. Race officials will stay with all runners on the course to make sure they arrive to the finish line safely.
All runners registered by March 21 are guaranteed to receive a race shirt. Any registrations after this date will be based on availability.

We will be holding our traditional post-race program near the finish line on Boundary Street, including water and light snacks and the award ceremony at approximately 10:45 AM.
All weekend, Frog Level Brewing will be providing a complimentary beer to all of-age participants. Simply use the Glory Hound stub on your race number to redeem it.
All finishers will receive a commemorative award at the finish line.
Special pottery awards from Mud Dabbers Pottery will be presented to the top three male and female finishers for Overall finishers and First place Masters (40 & Over) in each race.
Age group awards will go to the first, second, and third male and female in the following age groups: 15 & Under, 16-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60 & Over. No double-dipping!
Please plan on being present for the awards ceremony or make arrangements for someone else to pick up your award. They are fragile and cannot be mailed.
The race will utilize chip timing. A timing chip will be on the back of your race bib, which should be worn on your front and visible at all times during the race.
Your time will start when you cross the start pad and end when you cross the finish line.
We love dogs but we don’t feel that running 13.1 miles with one is a good idea. For that reason, dogs are not permitted in the half marathon, however, they are allowed in the Mighty Four Miler.
All racers and spectators are encourage to park in the Haywood County Courthouse parking deck on Branner Avenue.
Glory Hound Events has a NO REFUND policy.
