A Different Half Marathon

Most runs have water stations and bananas on hand for refueling.  The DC Half and Half Marathon challenges you to down a half smoke with chips at the midway point.  

After running 6.55 miles, you are greeted by our volunteers at Ben's Chili Bowl and given a basket of Ben's finest half smoke with chili, mustard and onions (vegetarian alternative available).  Show your clean basket to a volunteer and you can run the remaining 6.55 miles to the finish line!   


DC Half and Half Marathon proceeds are donated to ScholarCHIPS which supports and mentors college bound students with incarcerated parents.  Learn more about how the DC Half and Half Marathon came to support this amazing organization!
