The Second Annual Bainbridge Half Marathon will be held on the fourth weekend of March, 2013 in beautiful downtown Bainbridge. There will be a Health and Fitness Expo held on Friday, March 22nd and the Bainbridge Half Marathon will be held on Saturday, March 23rd, at 7:00 AM. There will also be a “Kids’ Half Marathon” on Saturday, March 23rd at 10:00 AM in conjunction with the main race.
The Bainbridge Half Marathon along with “A Night At the Races”; a Kentucky Derby themed event, was created as a fundraiser for the Memorial Hospital Foundation and the money raised supports the Foundation’s mission to provide needed special equipment to Memorial Hospital, advancing health care in Southwest Georgia. The Half Marathon’s course is designed to showcase some of Bainbridge’s classic neighborhoods, our beautiful oak tree lined streets, and other local points of interest.
We are very excited about the opportunity to bring a top notch distance running event to Bainbridge. Running, Walking, and a Health and Fitness Expo will have many positive effects on the city. We would like to invite runners of all abilities, sponsors, volunteers, and spectators to participate in these events. We are looking forward to March, and are committed to growing the Bainbridge Half Marathon and promoting healthy living in Southwest Georgia, Southeastern Alabama, and Northern Florida.
