The 11th annual Murfreesboro Half Marathon will be held on Saturday, October 14th this year (2017).
Registration for "The Middle Half" will open on Thursday, June 1, 2017.
Over the years, registration has sold out extremely quick and as in years past, there is a cap on the number of participants in the race. This year, the cap is set at 3,000 runners, according to the Middle Half website. You also have to be at least 14-years of age to compete.
Because the course runs by the geographic center of Tennessee, begins and ends at Middle Tennessee State University, it has been tagged "The Middle Half."
The course goes down scenic tree-lined Main Street and Maney Avenue to Oaklands Historic House Museum. Runners will circle the Rutherford County Courthouse on the Square, pass by MTSU's Fraternity Row and the obelisk on Old Lascassas, and then finish on the MTSU track.
