The Pelham Half Marathon and 10K is one of the fastest-growing community events in Westchester County, NY. The 2017 race attracted 800 runners, more than 100 volunteers, and countless cheering family and friends. The race is centrally located in downtown Pelham to coincide with "Small Business Saturday" on Thanksgiving weekend.
The race benefits both our sponsors and people in our community who need our help. All proceeds are donated to The Pelham Civic Association, a 150-member volunteer organization dedicated to providing support for Pelham seniors, youth, students, disabled, and disadvantaged. Founded in 1939, Civics recently celebrated its 75th anniversary.
This is a great opportunity to promote your business to athletes and families in Southern Westchester and New York City, and to show your support for the important work of the Pelham Civics.
