Runner’s World, a US-based international running magazine with a circulation of more than 700,000 readers, named the Jazz Half Marathon and 5K among the Year’s Best Half Marathons. The beautiful route that takes runners through some of the most historic parts of the city, the ease of running a “pancake flat” course, and a great post-race party once racers cross the finish line were all the things that helped the Jazz Half make the list.

The smiling faces of our young cancer patients will once again grace the mile-markers, banners, and signs that line the course and decorate the post-race party, reminding Jazz Half runners that they are racing to beat childhood cancer.
