About The Hospice Half
The Hospice Half Marathon in Valdosta, Georgia on 18 February 2023 is a great race for runners of all levels. Whether you’re an experienced marathoner looking to get a personal best or just starting out and wanting to try your first half marathon, this event has something for everyone.
The route offers beautiful scenery throughout the city of Valdosta. Runners start at Wild Adventures Theme Park and make their way through historic downtown streets towards the southern tip of Lake Seminole where they’ll take in some stunning views before heading back into town. Along the way there are plenty of places to stop and refuel with snacks and drinks from local vendors as well as inspiring quotes from famous athletes encouraging runners to push themselves further than ever before!
February weather in Valdosta can be unpredictable but usually temperatures stay around 50-60 degrees Fahrenheit during the day with little chance for rain showers. Race organizers have done an excellent job making sure that any potential inclement weather won’t affect runner’s performance by providing plenty of shelter stops along the course if necessary. The crowds also add to this race’s atmosphere; locals come out in droves cheering on competitors while music plays loudly at each mile marker keeping everyone motivated until they reach the finish line!
The Hospice Half Marathon is truly special because it not only gives runners a challenging yet rewarding experience, it also raises funds for hospices across South Georgia so that patients can receive much needed care and services – giving competitors even more reason to break those personal records!
