The Race Day 8K on October 13th, 2018 will run in conjunction with the Evansville Half Marathon.

The Race Day 8K is an exciting addition to the 15th Annual Evansville Half Marathon Race weekend that allows the whole family to get involved in race day. It’s the perfect distance to challenge yourself and try something new.

Race Day 8K participants will line up with friends and family who are participating in the Evansville Half Marathon and everyone will take off at 7:00am. 8K participants will run the first 4.97 miles of the half marathon course but will finish on Third Street near Main, just a few blocks from the Half Marathon finish line. 8K participants can then make their way to the Riverfront to celebrate with the Half Marathon finishers.
