Gettysburg Blue-Gray Half Marathon and 5k
In keeping with the theme that was initiated by the Gettysburg North-South Marathon, this half marathon strives to put a different spin on the same idea. We want to have the North and South battle on the roads of Gettysburg 150 years after the historic battle that defined the future of a young nation. Runners from North and South will compete again under Blue and Gray flags. Cheer on your favorite runner!
