Capital Cardio!

Run with us! Walk with us! Come out at night and glow with us!  From serious runners and weekend warriors to first-timers and walkers, every level of athlete can appreciate the beautiful Harrisburg scenery and sense of community and cause that comes with a well-organized race event.

We've put together a list of race events taking place this year and we'll update it as more dates become final. Plan a visit around the race, or plan the race around the visit. Most events feature Walks and Fun Runs for the younger troops or non-runners in the family. Plus, pre and post-race events are planned to celebrate runners' accomplishments and highlight worthy charities. So pick a weekend and pick a pace. Start stretching and we'll see you soon!

Wait! It's not all about competition. Harrisburg is full of places to walk, run, bike and relax without pinning on a race bib. Stroll through the green spaces at Wildwood Park. Grab a map of the Green Belt and bike a few miles. Harrisburg's riverfront has some epic sunrises and sunsets that will get you in the "get moving" spirit too!
