Guide to Back-of-the-Pack Friendly Half Marathons

NOTE: This list is provided for informational purposes only as a resource for slower runners, race walkers and “back of the pack” athletes to find races with welcoming and supportive time limits.  These are the races historically known for being welcoming to athletes of all paces. 

This list is not an endorsement of any the races mentioned.  No race directors paid us to be on this list.  This is an athlete community resource. The information was crowdsourced via athlete and race director submissions. 

We have tried to include every race we can based on the information on a race’s website, and the suggestions of past participants. This list includes both road and trail events.

It is possible that some races on this list no longer exist; have removed the half marathon from its offered distances; or the race directors have decided to cease operations.

We do not include virtual races on this list- these have to be in-person events.

All information is subject to change- check the race website before registering to see if time limits have changed and to make sure events haven’t been cancelled or discontinued. 

If you know of a race that should be added to this list, if a correction is needed, or if a race should be removed, please fill out the form below. Please provide the race name, website, state and published time limit or specific race information (see examples of what race directors have shared below).

The criteria to be listed: walker-friendly time limit (3:30 or more) and/or walkers and slower runners are offered an early start; finishers get a recorded race time; aide stations, course volunteers/marshals and course direction signs are not taken down early; course time limit information must be on the race website.  If there is no time limit information clearly listed on your website, we will not put your event on the list.
