Jonesborough, TN, Tennessee’s Oldest Town    Run Amuck with us at the Haunted Half Marathon. We think Jonesborough is the perfect new home for the Haunted Half Marathon. It has a lot to offer as “Tennessee’s Oldest Town” with many historic homes and buildings, the Storytelling Center, and a haunted history which fits into the theme of the race. The Town of Jonesborough has welcomed Haunted Half with open arms and in cooperation with their Haunts & Happenings, will offer a full day of Halloween festivities on Oct. 28th. We look forward to many years of haunted running in Jonesborough!

Time Limit – Note that there is a 3-hour time limit. If you plan to take longer than 3 hours you are still welcome to participate and finish the race, but once the 3-hour time limit has passed, you may be on your own as far as traffic control and you may be required to use sidewalks.  We will continue to keep the timing system in operation until the last runner crosses the finish line.  You also might consider the Early Start option (see below).
Early Start (optional) – If you think you will finish in 3 hours 15 minutes or longer, you are also welcome to start early, keep your own time, and turn it in to the official timer when you cross the finish line.  Meet at the starting line at 9:00 am to check in and get started.  If you feel like you need to start earlier than 9 am, you can start on your own anytime between 8:30 and 9:00 am.  We ask that you remove the timing strip from the back of your bib number so we won’t record an incorrect time.
