The Palmetto Half Marathon (November 23, 2019) is a community movement in which experienced runners and enthusiastic volunteers come together to promote fitness, community involvement and charitable causes. It has become a tradition among Columbia residents, and the Half Marathon event is now attracting the attention of elite runners nationwide.
Palmetto Half Marathon proceeds have always gone to charity. The event started out with just one Charity Beneficiary, but in 2013, we expanded our financial support to even more groups within our community. The Charity Partner Program presents a variety of opportunities for local organizations to gain exposure and raise funds. Please take a moment to learn more about how your group can get involved.
