Taskinas Creek Half Marathon

York River State Park

Taskinas Creek Half Marathon


In 2021, this race was a FULL Marathon and I decided to try it as a half this year. Why? Why not? The course will still include the same final 2 miles from the marathon course (epic and tough!). Registration is limited to 150 registrants. The course will include single track trails, fire road type trails and a short road portion. Time limit for the race is 4.5 hours.

Course Info

The trail is a mixture of surfaces, over half single track mountain bike trail. About 1 mile of pavement and the remainder dirt fire-type road. I will post the elevation as soon as I have it, I am finalizing the course, but I would guess it will be around 600ft. Rolling terrain and some nice flat single track too. The course features many scenic views throughout!


All finishers will receive a beautiful finishers medal. Other awards will be:Top 3 Male and Female Overall

Top 3 men and women in the following categories: 19 & under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70 & up
