About This Activity
Gateway to the Smokies Half Marathon will take your breath away…even if the run doesn’t! The race is a beautiful run through the high mountain valleys of Haywood County just outside the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The course begins on Main Street in downtown Waynesville where the sights, sounds, and shoppes will delight your visual senses. Rolling through neighborhoods and scenic rural farmlands the course will take you far from the hustle and bustle of big city life. Each turn or hill top opens up scenic vistas of the surrounding mountain peaks. The course finishes in Waynesville’s Frog Level, a revitalized railroad district listed on the National Register of Historic Places. There you can visit our local craft breweries, enjoy delicious post-race food and refreshments.
The course is spectator friendly with numerous locations to watch family and friends. This race is a certified and an OPEN course with road traffic along with runners.

See you in May!
