For the second year in a row, we saw big shakeups on The BibRave 100 Half Marathon list. Almost half of the Top 20 for 2019 is comprised of newcomers while the remaining half is made up of races that have consistently earned their spot for multiple years in a row. One common thread we spotted among the races on our list is that Half Marathon runners value top-notch race organization and community support, but more than anything, they sure do love a good after-party! At races big and small, runners embraced the opportunity to celebrate post-race with everything from mimosas to bourbon and from 50-yard-line finishes to beach bonfires.
With so many excellent races to choose from, we’re proud of the Half Marathons that made this list.
Below is a list of the Top 5 Half Marathons ranked in order, followed by the remainder of the Top 20 in alphabetical order.
