Highlights from Half Marathon Weekend on September 8 & 9, 2017

Team Shenanigans really got into the local scenery.

Half Marathon runners who have run our race for the past 4 years joke that they should get a horse next year to put their medals on!
“My wife (on the right) and our friend Linda running the 5K. I did the Fire Company Challenge and also got a course PR (personal record) on the half.” – Jeremy Lee Radosh (Herndon, VA)
The event grounds appear peaceful at 4:00 am Saturday, but volunteers have been up since 3:30 am to set up water stops, direct parking, begin cooking chicken, and more!
Ed & Eileen Bare enjoy a break from presenting Road Apple Awards at the Half Marathon. Runners must complete the Garden Spot Half or Full Marathon along with the Bird-in-Hand Half Marathon in the same calendar year to receive this unique award.
Community volunteers served over 1,200 people at the Friday evening Pizza & Pasta Dinner. They do an amazing job preparing food in the middle of a field!
Volunteer Mark Stoltzfus prepares to lead the 2 hour 30 minute pacer group at Saturday’s Half Marathon.
Vella Shpringa (meaning “Let’s Run”, in Pennsylvania Dutch), not for personal honor, but for community.
