Registration for the ninth annual Murfreesboro Half Marathon ("The Middle Half") will open Monday, June 1st. Registration will open at 12-noon. The 13.1-mile race is scheduled for Saturday, October 10th.
Last year, the event sold out very quickly. The cap for participants remains the same as last year, 3,250.
Participants may register online by credit or debit card at www.themiddlehalf.com beginning at 12pm on Monday, June 1st. Paper forms for check payments will be available locally at Fleet Feet Sports, Murfreesboro. The form may also be downloaded from the event website, however, online registration is recommended due to the anticipated sell-out.
Because the course runs by the geographic center of Tennessee, begins and ends at Middle Tennessee State University and is presented by Middle Tennessee Medical Center, 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 by MTSU's Fraternity Row and the obelisk on Old Lascassas, and then finish on the MTSU track.
