The Hendersonville Half Marathon and The Rotary Club of Hendersonville are deeply grateful to the Primrose School of Hendersonville for returning for the third year as our Title Sponsor.
The Hendersonville Half Marathon has become one of the Rotary Club of Hendersonville's yearly fundraising events to benefit a local charity.
This is the third year of our race. In the past two years we have had runners from 28 different cities in the state of Tennessee in addition to Hendersonville. Our reach out of state includes Arkansas, Kentucky, Indiana, Alabama, N. Carolina, Texas, Missouri, Virginia, Kansas, and Illinois.
The last two years we have given money to Mary’s Magical Place in support of their efforts to build a playground for special needs children here in Hendersonville. Construction is underway and we are happy to have helped in that endeavor.
This year our race committee has chosen The Mighty Mitchell Foundation as the recipient of all the registration proceeds. Our sponsorship funds allow us to certify the course, purchase safety vests, run internet and paper advertising and pay the company that registers the racers and sets up our start/finish line.
This race has engaged the high school honor societies, business clubs, athletes and volunteers from the community. The Streets of Indian Lake has been very supportive of our efforts, as well as Fleet Feet, the YMCA and many local hotels. And, of course, we could not have pulled off the event these last two years without the support of our Mayor's office, the Hendersonville Police Department and our EMTs.
