2017 Race Recap

Our 2017 Murray Half Marathon / 5k Race was a HUGE success with 776 registered runners and a fun-filled week of promotions and events.  Participants enjoyed an officially certified course, Toyota Truck giveaway, Murder Mystery Dinner Theater, "Ride with Larry" movie screening, Wing Eating Contest, the Second Annual Poster Design Contest and Art Auction and many more events too numerous to mention.  We thank each and every one of you who ran, volunteered or participated in some other way to help make our 2017 race a HUGE SUCCESS!

The Murray Half Marathon (MHM) is a 13.1 mile route that gives runners a grand tour of our fine city. Runners start at the Center for Health and Wellness on Poplar Street before heading downtown to the historic courthouse square.  After winding through scenic Central Park, the runners then hit the pavement of the Murray State University's beautiful campus.  The runners continue the race on the west side of the city, where they pass through various residential and commercial neighborhoods before returning to Murray-Calloway County Hospital to finish the race.  The route stays fairly flat and offers plenty of scenery along the way.

The Murray Half Marathon event has sponsorship levels to suit everyone's budget.  From individual support to corporate level sponsorship there is an opportunity for all to be involved.  All proceeds from this event will go towards supporting the Murray Calloway Endowment for Healthcare and demonstrate your commitment to our mission of providing quality, access, affordable healthcare and related services for people in our region.  

Our preferred approach is to talk with you about your goals and objectives and create something suitable for your budget.  often new sponsorship ideas are created from discussion like these and that's what makes our approach so different - we listen and give you value!  For more information please contact Keith Travis at 270.227.0253.
