Starts Sunday December 12th, 2021

Kennesaw, GA

Official Website


This is the crown jewel of the Locomotive Race Series! Long Sleeve shirts, custom finisher medals and FREE pasta party for half marathoners! Two amazing courses that both finish to a huge post party!


We have several options again this year for both the live race and virtual race, including the marathon challenge! Run a virtual half marathon the week before the race, and either the LIVE half marathon or another VIRTUAL half marathon race weekend to complete the challenge. All marathon challenge participants are eligible for awards in the half marathon (live half marathon or virtual half marathon, depending on which version you registered for) as well as the marathon challenge. And in addition to all the half marathon swag you will receive a limited edition hoodie!
