About The The Scream! Half Marathon
The Scream! Half Marathon in Lenoir, North Carolina on 29 July 2023 is sure to be an unforgettable race. The 13.1 mile course runs through scenic rural areas with rolling hills and stunning views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Along the way runners will pass by waterfalls, quilt fields, and picturesque farms as they make their way towards the finish line at Hibriten High School Football Stadium.
The typical weather that time of year is hot and humid but with plenty of shade along the route it’s not too unbearable for most runners. Temperatures can reach up to 90 degrees during peak hours so it’s important to stay hydrated throughout your run. You’ll also want to bring a hat or other sun protection just in case!
The crowds are very supportive during this half marathon which adds a great energy boost along the course. Local businesses come out in force offering food and drinks for runners as well as providing music throughout each leg of the race which really helps motivate people to keep going when things get tough!
One unique aspect about this half marathon is that there are several “scream zones” set up along different sections of the route where you can let out your inner screamer – these usually draw huge crowds who come out just to cheer on those running past them! It’s definitely an experience like no other and one that will leave you feeling energized after completing this challenging yet rewarding race course.
Overall, The Scream Half Marathon provides a great opportunity for runners of all levels to take part in a fun event while experiencing some amazing scenery at the same time. Whether you’re new to running or have been doing it for years, this half marathon offers something special that will help push you further than ever before!
