Race Details

Due to the current circumstances with Covid-19 the Honeywagon Runs are going to be quite a bit different this year. They are going to consist of two different types of  Virtual Runs, one with a designated course and another where you can run anywhere you would like (My Course). With each type of Virtual Run we are offering the traditional Half Marathon as well as the 4 Mile Run.  The designated Half Marathon Course will begin and end at the Hotel Bellwether. The 4 Mile course will begin and end just behind Still Life Massage and Float near Hotel Bellwether. More details and a full description of the courses can be found below. With each Virtual Run you have from April 1st to April 30th to complete your Run/Walk and record it on Webscorer. We are offering some really nice awards and plenty of swag (see below) in hopes of enticing you runners/walkers out to participate. We are so sorry we cannot offer you our usual in person event. We do hope you join us  for this  years 2021 Virtual Version of the Honeywagon Runs!
