About This Activity

The Spa Running Festival, November 19, 2016 includes a Half Marathon, 10K, 5K and 1K Squirt Race!

The Spa Running Festival is an event that has a race for everyone ..... kids, walkers, beginners to elite runners and those that like a challenge!  This year will be the 35th running of the Spa 10K and it continues to be our featured race as part of the Grand Prix Racing Series.  The 5K is for  both walkers and runners!  The 1K Squirt Race is for kids 2 - 10 years of age and is alway so much fun to watch! The challenging Half Marathon returns!  If you liked the challenge of the Spa 10K running over West Mountain, then you are going to really like the Half Marathon because you get to run West Mountain and to the top of the Summit twice - hence the name Summit² Challenge! Are You Up To The Challenge? 

The Spa Running Festival is receiving national attention in the running community. Runner’s World Magazine featured the Spa Running Festival in the November 2015 edition and the 10k received recognition as a Bucket List event in the Runner’s World “Top 10 Races In or Near a National Park.”
