The Palmetto Half Marathon has become a Columbia tradition since the inaugural race in 2010! The course starts in front of Academy Sports + Outdoors inside the Village at Sandhill and finishes at the Fountain in the center of the Village at Sandhill. The start time for the Half Marathon is 7 a.m. on April 9, 2016.
What better way to get your child active than to have them run a half marathon! Run/walk 1 mile per week for the 12 weeks prior to April 8, 2016. You can do this in increments or a full one mile at a time, it’s up to you. If you miss a week, be sure to make it up so that you complete 12 miles prior to race day.
In 2013, The Palmetto Half Marathon expanded our financial support to the community by offering a new opportunity for local charities to be involved in the event. The Charity Partner Program is a great opportunity for local non-profit organizations to gain exposure as well as fundraise for their cause.
