New discount for Fifty States Half Marathon Club members to the October 2015 inaugural Shenandoah Leaf Peeper Half Marathon in Virginia!
The Shenandoah Leaf Peeper Half Marathon & 10K will have you tackling the hills in and around Front Royal during the 45th annual Festival of Leaves. With the Shenandoah Mountains and the South Fork of the Shenandoah River as the backdrop at the time of year when the radiant colors of the changing leaves are simply stunning, the miles will fade quickly under your feet as you knock out this two loop 13.1-mile and single loop 10K course.
Looking for something fun to do with a friend? Sign up for the Half Marathon relay and do half the distance but have twice the fun. Each person will run one loop and pass off their chip at the halfway point.
Proceeds from the race go to support the Warren Heritage Society, which is the Front Royal/Warren County community's historical society, museum, and archives. It was established as a nonprofit organization in 1971, and the Warren Heritage Society has held the Shenandoah Valley's Festival of Leaves ever since.
Make a weekend of it! Warm up with the Festival of Leaves on Saturday, October 10, enjoying the parade and the historical displays, arts and craft vendors, live entertainment, a children’s area, tours of historic homes, living history interpretations, and food concessions on East Main Street. www.warrenheritagesociety.org.
