Nittany Valley Half-Marathon to Return in December

The Nittany Valley Running Club will host its 31st annual half-marathon on Sunday, Dec. 7 at 10 a.m.

Runners will participate in a “few-frills race.” With a low fee ($30), no bibs, and no medals or prizes, the race is for those that just can’t get enough of those runner’s highs. The course features three water stops along the route, so runners will be able to get at least somewhat of a break in the middle of the State College tundra. Anyone is welcome to run, but you must be registered by race time.

The 13.1-mile run will start at the northeast end of the Ag Arena parking lot near Beaver Stadium and will take runners in a giant loop of the university and surrounding residential areas, such as Fox Hollow Road and Toftrees. After a staggering mix of hills and long stretches of flat ground, runners will find the finish line on Porter Road to the left of the Centre Country Visitor’s Bureau parking lot. Below is a map of the route:

The Nittany Valley Half-Marathon is actually the successor of the Nittany Valley Marathon (yes, this used to be a full-blown marathon). In recent years, participation has skyrocketed to almost 700 runners due in part to near-perfect running weather at race time. This lands the event among the largest races in the region. Runners must register on the event’s website prior to the race in order to participate.
