Over 15 years ago, Miles and Melinda Tate felt that Murfreesboro needed a half marathon to springboard the running community.  Since that time, the Murfreesboro Half Marathon (“The Middle Half”) has been a fixture in our community with the focus on the health and well-being of runners from all over Tennessee and beyond.  Many of you have your own inspirational stories and can attest that this race has been an amazing event with lots of memories for everyone. 
But all good things do have a season, and with the passing of Miles Tate, we believe it’s time for this race’s season to come to an end. Miles’ legacy will continue, and his mark on our community will be forever remembered and cherished as the race was truly a community event that the entire city embraced and made great.
Therefore, the board has made the tough decision to end The Middle Half after this year’s race on October 8. We encourage runners to come run with us one last time. You’ll be glad you did.
