The Spa Running Festival is an event that has a race for everyone including kids, walkers, beginners to elite runners and those that like a challenge! The Spa 10K continues to be our featured race as part of the Grand Prix Racing Series. The 5K is for both walkers and runners! The Squirt Race is for kids 2 - 10 years of age and is always so much fun to watch! This year, we are very pleased to again offer a Half Marathon course. If you liked the challenge of the Spa 10K running over West Mountain, then you are going to really like the Half Marathon because you get to run West Mountain and to the top of the Summit twice - hence the name Summit² Challenge! Are You Up To The Challenge? The maximum number of participants for the Half Marathon is 300. Don't think to long or you may miss out.  The Spa 10k is a nationally recognized event as featured in Runner's World Magazine Races & Places, November 2015 edition.
