Marine Corps Historic Half

The Historic Half is perfectly situated halfway between the capital of the Commonwealth in Richmond and the nation’s capital.

The hugely popular Half has made historic Fredericksburg a fashionable spring weekend getaway. The scenic course tours colonial sites and the quaint downtown before scaling ominous Hospital Hill to be greeted at the finish by the US Marines. Along the way, runners pass significant landmarks dating back to our nation’s beginnings and notable neighborhoods that were home to America’s forefathers, including Presidents George Washington and James Monroe.

A quick drive of just 50 minutes from DC and Richmond, Fredericksburg hosts the Marine Corps Historic Half-- the best half marathon in history.
