The KSQ Mushroom Cap Half Marathon and Relay Event explores Kennett Square’s landmarks, unique neighborhoods, and growing commerce. The race features an Olympic Start and takes runners on a picturesque journey throughout the mushroom capital of the world. Hydrate with TailWind Nutrition at 13 themed aid stations along the course and when you cross the finish line, we’ll hand you a finisher’s medal and lead you to our nosh and recovery tent. Immediately following, get your celebration on at our post-race Creamery Event complete with Victory Beer, Live Music and Food Truck Fuel.
From the runner swag, to the course, to the themed aid stations… It’s the race that celebrates you!
There is a 3:30 minute (16-minute mile) cutoff time for this race. If you are not at the 9 mile marker by 9:55AM you will be asked to leave the course in the safety vehicle provided. After this time aid stations will be closed, police will not be monitoring traffic, roads will be re-opened, making safe passage to the finish very difficult. If you do not feel that you can maintain a 16-minute mile or less over the 13.1 mile course, for your safety, please consider a different event. Perhaps our Relay Event!
The KSQ Mushroom Cap Half Marathon is a rain or shine event. We hope and plan for sun but if the opposite holds true, we will run in rain, in wind and in snow. Only EXTREME weather conditions (i.e. hurricanes or blizzards) will close the event. Our goal is to start this event on time at 7:30AM and have every runner safely finished by 11:00AM.
“This race is an amazing combination of small town charm, beautiful scenery and extraordinary people, which makes it fun and rewarding for everyone who participates. A premier destination race right here in small town Kennett Square!”
The KSQ Mushroom Cap 13.1 is a race where every runner counts!
