Berry Half MarathonHundreds of runners, joggers and walkers will converge on the Berry campus Saturday, March 28, for the eighth-annual Berry Half Marathon, 10K and 5K road races.

Now a beloved tradition, this fundraising event for Berry College Elementary and Middle School promises fun and fitness for a good cause. The half-marathon and 10K start at 8 a.m.; the 5K follows at 8:20 a.m. The half-marathon course takes participants down Lavender Mountain Drive (stretch road) to Berry’s mountain campus, past such famed landmarks as Frost Chapel, the Old Mill and WinShape Retreat Center, then back to main campus by way of the Viking Trail. The 10K and 5K races utilize shorter sections of stretch road and the Viking Trail. There’s also a 1-mile fun run for children in the Clara Bowl. Registration fees are currently $70 for the half marathon ($75 after March 22; $80 on race day), $35 for the 10K ($40 on race day) and $30 for the 5K ($35 on race day).
