The Colchester Half Marathon offers:
Do you want to join the fun but you’re not a big runner? Volunteer!! There is plenty to do, great folks to meet & plenty of fun to be had. Join everyone at the post race party & don’t go home hungry!
My offer to all runners - think the entry fee is too high, send me what you want! If you don’t have at least $14.00 worth of fun, or consume $14 worth of food& drink, or don’t get at least $14 worth of endorphins, we are even. But if you have a great time, be sure to put some more cash into the donation containers at the post race party in the high school cafeteria.
Broke? Can’t afford the gas & the entry fee? Come out and run it for free and come on over to the post race party too, just be sure and try to make it back when you can afford to pay!
We don’t want to turn anyone away from a course this tough!
No profit is made from this race and volunteers are not compensated in any way (so be sure to tell them you appreciate them) but we always hope to break even. This race is for and about all the runners who have supported so many good causes at so many other road races with their ever increasing entry fees. All Colchester Half marathon entry fees are spent on the race and the post race party, so enjoy!
