We are thrilled to announce our plan for a 2022 live event next August in Springfield!
It has been a goal of ours for years to bring the Happy Half Marathon to Springfield. Our family’s history here spans multiple generations and it has always held a special place in our hearts. Springfield has a unique history and extremely bright future. The downtown area has seen a resurgence with new businesses and we wanted to be part of it.
We have been working with officials from the City of Springfield and Wittenberg University to put together a course that will highlight many of the great things that Springfield has to offer. As we continue to grow, this will allow us to organize bigger and better races. Most importantly, this will help us continue to increase our ability to make a positive impact in our community by benefiting the Springfield Cancer Center.
Additionally, we will continue to offer a virtual race option for those that want to participate but may not be able to join us in Springfield on race day!
We hope that you are as excited as we are and that you will help us continue to make this a great event for the city of Springfield!

Health Department Guidelines:
We are currently working to get the most up-to-date guidelines from the local health department and will provide those policies as we receive them.
The idea for our race comes from family members running the 13.1 mile course from Springfield to Yellow Springs to train for a full-marathon in which they would be raising money to help cover the cost of cancer treatment for Mike Maloney, father of Co-Director Alex Maloney. The first official Happy Half Marathon was held in 2012. Our race brings together 300+ runners from all over to support our cause and give them a chance to achieve their fitness goals.
