Half2run Membership Exceeds 1000! And We’re Searching for More!



Half marathon events are the way to go at Half-2-Run, the running club that prides itself on “Not going all the way”. The inspiring goal of club members is to run or walk a half marathon event in half the States.

Half2Run.com launched in early 2005, and now has more than 1000 members representing 45 states and Canada. People joined for various reasons but mainly for the goal and the challenge! And isn’t that the point? To quote Tom Hanks in the movie, A League of Their Own, “It’s the hard that makes it great.”

Member benefits include discounts on race entry, a weekly email and other special club perks. On Half2Run.com members can chart their progress in “My Race List,” submit stories about their half-marathon adventures, find and add half marathons in the Half Marathon Calendar and chat with other members.

Members receive a Half2Run “I don’t go all the way” run cap, a half2run T-shirt and a finishers medal after they complete the challenge.

Member comments:

“I love the program and it's just the type of thing that I need to help me let running enable a true change in lifestyle that my body so desperately needs.” –Diana, MI

“My running buddies and I have been thinking of doing some road trip races. Now with half2run, we already have the next few races planned!” – Stacy, TX

“I was actually trying to do this on my own before I read an article about your club in the AARP magazine. I was really curious to find out if you welcomed walkers too and was pleasantly surprised that you do.” – Christie, NC

And what do you do once you complete the mission? Follow in the prestigious footsteps of half2run members Carol Gosliln and Eileen Fannon, and go half the distance in every state!
Or as half2run founder, Randy Step, says, “next are half the provinces, then half the countries, then half the continents….”

The sky is the limit – are you up for the challenge?
