About This Activity

About This Event:

Currently in its twelfth consecutive year, the Holy Half Marathon is one of the largest student-organized events at the University of Notre Dame. 1,500 runners participate annually, coming from the Notre Dame, Saint Mary's College and Holy Cross College campuses, the South Bend community, and the Irish fanbase and alumni network nationwide.

The Holy Half has truly become one of the greatest traditions at the University of Notre Dame. Runners take pride not only in training for and completing a 13.1-mile race, but also in making a difference to South Bend on behalf of the University.

The course runs along the beautiful campus of the University of Notre Dame passing iconic attractions including the Golden Dome, Grotto, Touchdown Jesus mural, and lakes.
