About The St. Joe Valley Happy Trail Run

The St. Joe Valley Happy Trail Run is a must-do half marathon race taking place on November 11, 2023, in South Bend, IN. This event offers a range of distances, including a 1-mile, 5k, 10k, and the iconic Half Marathon. Lace up your running shoes and head to St. Patrick’s County Park for a remarkable experience while supporting a great cause.

The trails at St. Patrick’s County Park are beginner-friendly, allowing participants to enjoy the stunning scenery along the way. Each loop offers a unique challenge, and the Half Marathon runners will be treated to the picturesque views of the park as they complete four loops before finishing with a final “out and back” mile to tally up the full 13.1 miles.

While pets are welcome to spectate, they won’t be able to accompany you on the course (sorry, Rover!). In order to ensure a smooth event, all Half Marathon participants must start their last lap by 11:40 am EST. And for those looking to lend a helping hand, volunteering opportunities are available to make the race experience even more special.
