The Harvest Half is a half marathon (13.1 miles) for all ages. Compete as an individual for the half marathon, or form a relay team of up to four athletes. The Harvest Half will not be capped.
The Harvest Half will start and finish at the Riverside Park in Presque Isle. Run through the heart of Presque Isle, and quickly climb to the outstretched farm fields along Centerline Road. Briefly run along the historic main artery to Northern Maine, US Rt. 1, then behold the rolling road that takes athletes just north of Aroostook State Park. A quick out and back portion of the course before heading back on a nearly flat road for the remainder of the run before finishing off this amazing event with a roaring finish!
Not up to 13.1 miles yet? Forget running long distance? Want some fun? Consider being a member of a relay team for The Harvest Half! A relay team consists of two to four members, who will complete a segment or two of the half marathon (approximately 3.2 miles for each segment). Need help creating a relay team?
