Registrations for this year’s half marathon are already well ahead of numbers from last year, with nearly 100 half marathoners having signed up by mid-February.

Online registration is available at active.com. Fees are $40 for the half marathon and $20 for the 5-K through Wednesday, Feb. 29. Beginning March 1, the fees increase to $60 for the half marathon and $25 for the 5-K. No registrations will be accepted after Wednesday, March 21, including on race day.

Race hosts are WCU’s School of Health Sciences and Department of Campus Recreation and Wellness. Proceeds will be used to support professional development opportunities for students.
