Huntsville Half - Band on the Run 2013

Saturday June 8, 2013. Races start and finish in River Mill Park in downtown Huntsville. Same location for the post-race music festival.

More than just a race event, the Huntsville Half - Band on the Run is a festival of running and music. This, the second year of the event, features multiple distances from a 1 km kids run to a 21 km half-marathon, plus a fantastic line up of musicians as part of the music festival.

Race Events

  • Half Marathon (21.0957 km – to be exact)
  • Half Marathon Relay
  • 10 km
  • 5 km
  • Kid’s Race
Canoe-Heads are welcome on the 5 km run. Yup, some people do this portage-style, carrying a canoe over their heads!

Music Festival

The post-race music festival will be rocking River Mill park in downtown Huntsville all afternoon. Free for event participants. Non-racers can buy tickets in advance ($10 here) or at the door ($15). 

  • Local fave Tobin Spring and Laganza are opening on the main stage, followed by
  • Three-time Juno Award winning band The SHEEPDOGS
  • with special guests The Sadies

It gets even better...

After the race (definitely after the race!) you can rehydrate with a sampling of local beers from a licensed beer garden just steps away.

And even better still...
