About The Haunted Half Marathon & Relay
The Haunted Half Marathon & Relay in Jonesborough, Tennessee is an event that takes place every October and draws runners from all over the region. On 28 October 2023, participants will have the opportunity to take on a challenging 13.1 mile course full of stunning scenery and memorable experiences.
The race begins at Sycamore Shoals State Park, which features rolling hills and lush green foliage that make for a stunning backdrop as you start your run. From there, runners will follow a route that winds through historic downtown Jonesborough before heading out along country roads lined with autumnal trees and picturesque farms. Along the way, you’ll pass by interesting landmarks like The Gray Fossil Site where paleontologists have discovered fossils dating back 5 million years!
October is typically cooler than other months of the year in Jonesborough so expect temperatures ranging from mid 40s to low 50s Fahrenheit (4-11 degrees Celsius). You should also come prepared for rain as this area can get quite wet during fall months.
With its gorgeous landscape and friendly atmosphere, it’s no surprise that crowds turn out in droves to cheer on competitors throughout their journey. Local businesses even line up alongside the route offering refreshments including beer tastings! Plus, if you want to add some extra spookiness to your experience then be sure to dress up in costume – Halloween is just around corner after all!
All things considered, running The Haunted Half Marathon & Relay can be one of life’s most rewarding accomplishments given its unique blend of natural beauty combined with special touches like costume competitions and local treats awaiting runners when they cross the finish line – what more could you ask for?
