Registration Opens December 1st!

The Half Marathon is a challenging and hilly course covering the expanse on Harpers Ferry National Historical Park and the Civil War era towns connecting them. Experience expansive views of the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers while you enjoy a loop through Harpers Ferry National Historical Park, Murphy Farm, Lower Town Harpers Ferry, John Brown's Fort, Bolivar, Storer College, and the homes taking you back to the 1860's. Our 5K event is a mix of trail and includes an out and back to a beautiful over look on the Murphy Farm Loop, a portion of Harpers Ferry National Park. Our Kids Event will be on site at River Riders and School House Ridge South.

These races couldn't continue without generous volunteers, so thank you so much!

This 5k was the perfect challenge for a runner, beautiful scenery and one of the best signage for a rural 5k I’ve participated in. Plenty of parking and plenty of portapots at the start line. Registration and packet pick up were super easy. I will defiantly be running this 5k again and after seeing the course Ive already signed up for the fall Harpers Ferry 1/2 Marathon.
