Our challenges provide a mixture of distances to allow half marathons, marathons, half ironman triathlons, and full ironman triathlons to be included in at least one of each of our challenges. This allows runners to mix it up if they choose, and/or still finish a 50 states challenge if they progress to become a marathoner, or cut back to half marathons, an enjoyable distance to run and travel. Additionally, feel free to join our running club as a "General Half Marathon Club Member" just for the discounts and perks! That's right! We are a national Half Marathon Club also open to all you half marathoners out there that know you will never run in all 50 States, but want to be part of the Half Marathon running community and enjoy the discounts (over 150!) and camaraderie of other half marathon club members, interact in our private member only groups, join our annual meet-ups, etc. Running in the USA continues to grow as a popular sport and activity and we all love Half Marathons, so join in!
