About The Armed Forces Half Marathon

The Armed Forces Half Marathon in Concord, California is an excellent race for all levels of runners. The course takes runners through the city of Concord, allowing them to experience some of its most beautiful sights and landmarks along the way. The route is mostly flat with a few challenging hills that make it great for both beginner and more experienced runners alike.

The scenery along the course is stunning, with views of rolling hills, lush green parks and open fields on one side and majestic mountains on the other. During this time of year (May), you can expect temperatures to range from cool mornings to warm afternoons, making it ideal for running as long as you’re prepared with sunscreen and appropriate clothing layers.

Crowds are always plentiful at this event which makes it a great social atmosphere even if you aren’t competing in the race itself! There will be plenty of cheering spectators along the sidelines providing lots of encouragement throughout your run – something that often helps take my mind off any pain or fatigue I may be feeling during a long run like this one!

Something special about this half marathon is that proceeds benefit several local military charities so every mile you run goes towards helping those who have served our country bravely! Additionally they offer finisher medals unique to each edition which makes completing your first half marathon extra special. All in all I highly recommend signing up for this race – whether you’re aiming for personal best times or just looking forward to spending time outdoors doing something healthy – because it’s sure to leave lasting memories worth cherishing forever!
