Bethel Half-Marathon and 5k Races
The Half Marathon and 5K Races are run through the lovely Bethel Community south of Canton, NC. The fall colors on the trees, the rolling farmlands, the Pigeon River, and the cool weather make this a particularly inviting race event. The race is held each year on the second Saturday of October. The race is sanctioned by the Asheville Track Club and race times are submitted for the ATC Grand Prix Series. The Half Marathon is USATF Certified #NC12099PH.
Registration and parking will be at the Bethel Middle School on Sonoma Road. Registration will open at 7am. The simultaneous start for both races is on Sonoma Road in front of the school at 8:30am. After-race awards ceremonies are held in the school gym. Awards must be picked up at the ceremonies, so if you can not stay, please arrange for a friend to get yours.
We have great amenities: Award ceremonies, post race refreshments, including some warm, home-made potato soup, and post race showers. With course directors at key intersections, we have safe races. We look forward to seeing you there this year.
The 5K Awards Ceremony will commence upon conclusion of 5K. Half Marathon Awards Ceremony will commence upon conclusion of Half Marathon.
Race is scored by CHIP TIMING. No strollers, please.
We thank our many sponsors for their past and continued support.
This year we will award the "Overall Male & Female" for each race. We will also have individual awards for the "Masters (over 50) Overall Male & Female" for the Half Marathon.
