On your mark…get set…go! Local runners won’t want to miss the upcoming Snickers Marathon and Half Marathon 2021 in Albany, GA. Craving a good workout? Want to help out a worthy cause? Don’t forget to sign up for this event by the start date of April 21.
What is the Snickers Marathon and Half Marathon?
Running isn’t just good for us—it also produces endorphins. If you’ve ever finished a race, you know the excitement and sense of achievement. Whether you want to go 13.1 miles or the full 26.2, you’ll be in your element at the Snickers Marathon and Half Marathon 2021.
The race takes place on a flat course. Your knees will certainly thank you for that! Plus, if you place well enough, this run is a Boston Marathon Qualifier. So, you can look forward to more good sprinting sessions in the future!
What’s included in my ticket purchase?
If you like to run, you probably have an impressive collection of T-shirts! Soon, you could add a Snickers Marathon and Half Marathon 2021 shirt to your list. Other things included in your ticket purchase are:
- A goodie bag;
- Refreshments at the finish line;
- A medal;
- Access to hydration stations; and
- Automatic free admission to attend the Health and Fitness Expo.
Additionally, all the proceeds will go the Willson Hospice House. It’s good to know that something as simple as a run can have a positive ripple effect in the community!
Mark it in your calendar: the marathon takes place on April 21! The wheelchair and hand-crank half/full marathon begins first at 6:45 a.m. Next up are the half marathon and full marathon, which start at 7 a.m. Head over to Front Street near Veterans Park to begin your run.
For registration, you have two choices. You can send in a form through mail or reserve your tickets online here. Runners can choose between virtual or in-person marathons—so make sure you select the one you want.
Though the marathon takes place in a couple of months, stay up-to-date on all local and state mask mandates. You should also stay six feet or farther from those not in your household. Additionally, please listen to all employee instruction and posted signage. That way, everyone can have a fun, safe run! Thanks for looking out for our community!
Sometimes, the best way to get out of our comfort zone is simply to sprint! Take on a new challenge with the Snickers Marathon and Half Marathon 2021. And remember—as the famous quote goes, “It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.” Happy running!
After a long marathon, you’ll probably want to go home and collapse in bed—or on the couch! Fortunately, your Summer Lane apartment offers comfy, cozy living, all year long. Learn more about our community here. You can also catch up on local events and news through our blog!
