Small Town Race
The Pelham Half Marathon and 10K are community-organized races on Thanksgiving weekend for families, enthusiasts, and competitive runners alike. Both races start and finish in downtown Pelham at 8am (half) and 8:15 (10K), and take runners through the two villages of Pelham and Pelham Manor.
The half marathon course is USATF Certified. Cash prizes and age group awards are given in both races. Runners receive a long sleeve race shirt and finisher medal.
Our race started on a whim in 2011 with a 9-person running group. Now hundreds of runners join us from across the NYC metro area, the US, and overseas (including Australia, South Africa, and Singapore). Yet most water stations are still staffed by family volunteers at the end of driveways.
Proceeds from the race help us do a lot of good in our neighborhood. 100% of net revenue is donated to the Pelham Civic Association which provides support and assistance for hundreds of people in the community every year.
