Geist and Carmel Half Marathon Challenge

Runners looking to run the Carmel Half Marathon (April 16) and the Geist Half Marathon (May 21) can take the Half Marathon Challenge. Pictured here are Aprill Shelburne with the St.Vincent Geist Half Marathon and Todd Oliver with the Carmel Marathon.

This year, the Geist Half and Carmel Marathon have partnered up to offer a “Half Marathon Challenge” sponsored by Haleh Krauter State Farm insurance. People that pay the fee and run both half marathons get some cool swag and a special collector’s edition medal, including a Half Marathon Challenge embroidered jacket, VIP Access to both events and two chances to win airfare, hotel and a free race entry to the March 2017 Publix Georgia Half Marathon in Atlanta!

“The Geist Half Marathon and Carmel Marathon are teaming up in an effort to encourage local runners to stay local! Participants may have the preconceived notion that we compete against one another for their participation, but in reality, we balance each other with five weeks between our races,” said Aprill Shelburne, Executive Director of the Geist Half Marathon.

“The Geist and Carmel Half Marathons are the premier races in Hamilton County with well over 10,000 participants between the two. We thought we would a show unity and support for one another by offering the Haleh Krauter State Farm 26.2 Half Marathon Club.”

The challenge is available to half marathon runners at the Carmel Marathon, which takes place Saturday, April 16 at 7:30 a.m. The Geist Half Marathon will take place Saturday, May 21 at 7 a.m.
