Union Half Marathon
The 3rd Annual Union Half Marathon and Relay will start at the Visitor Center in Big Stone Gap, VA. The course will utilize the paved Greenbelt Trail in Big Stone and then unite with the Powell River Trail in Appalachia, VA. Participants will be able to go through the two old train tunnels that make up the Powell River Trail. All completing participants will receive a unique finisher’s medal and a high quality performance shirt. Can’t run a full half marathon? That is fine, get some teammates and run the course as a relay team.
There is still time to sign up for this great race and join those from several states who have already signed up. If you can’t run we ask that you help on March the 21st in cheering our runners on as they run in these two historic towns!
The Union Half marathon is a USATF Certified Course, member of the SFTC Long Distance Series, and member of the Beast Half Marathon Series.
