Back in November RaceRaves polled runners from all over the world to choose the best half marathon in each of the 50 U.S. states, and we're proud to say our races were declared the best half marathons in 5 different states!

Glacier Half Marathon - Best Half Marathon in the state of Montana!

This course is challenging, but highly rewarding. Taking place just outside Glacier National Park, runners will be treated to some seriously stunning views! Come visit "the Alps of America"!

Mount Rushmore Half Marathon - Best Half Marathon in the state of South Dakota!

This race (if you'll excuse the pun) has some presidential views! With views of Mt. Rushmore and the surrounding, breathtaking Black Hills, this course is worth running. We won't sugar coat it, the hill climbing on this course is no joke, but the payoff is incredible.

Great Smoky Mountains Half Marathon - Best Half Marathon in the state of Tennessee!

Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the most visited park in the U.S., and if you've ever visited you won't be surprised. You couldn't ask for a more beautiful destination! This race is on the "Peaceful Side of the Smokies," with a gorgeous course through the woods.

Zion Half Marathon - Best Half Marathon in the state of Utah!

This course is a challenging but incredibly beautiful steady climb towards the mouth of Zion Canyon. This race takes you below the vibrant cliffs of Zion as you watch the sunrise over The Watchman. This is our flagship race, with our seventh Zion Half happening in 2020!

Grand Teton Half Marathon - Best Half Marathon in the state of Wyoming!

This race takes place in the historic town of Jackson, Wyoming, just outside the entrance to Grand Teton National Park. It's a beautiful course with captivating views of snow capped mountain peaks, huge gulps of crisp fresh air, and maybe even some wildlife.
