The 48th Annual Harrisburg Marathon will take you on a thrilling journey through beautiful Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Our fast, flat course is a Boston qualifier that’s sure to give plenty of runners a great PR!
We reimagined the Harrisburg Marathon event in 2015 and were met with rave reviews from new runners and seasoned marathoners alike. Dubbed as a “mini-Boston” this energetic race filled Second Street with people cheering, music playing, the energy of what has been called “Restaurant Row” as runners of our completely redesigned course round their way onto Second Street towards the new finish line at Locust.
Not running? Come to the Downtown Marathon Red Block Party!
Don’t miss the third annual Marathon Red Block Party sponsored by the Harrisburg Downtown Improvement District! We redesigned the Harrisburg Marathon course to integrate the event with the community that hosts it. Celebrate our “mini-Boston” and cheer on finishers in a huge downtown celebration!
- The lower level Riverfront Park path, a major part of the route in the current Marathon course, is not available for all of 2019 due to construction. The Harrisburg Marathon is in the process of being re-routed to accommodate for this closure. The updated course will be listed on this website once details are finalized. The 2019 route will still have great views of the Susquehanna River!
