Murfreesboro’s ‘The Middle Half’ Has 500 Spots Left

I received an email this morning from Melinda Tate, the RD for The Middle Half (Marathon) in Murfreesboro, TN, that the race has less than 500 spots left for the popular half marathon that takes place on October 15th.

Less that 500 spots are available for The Middle Half which will be held Saturday, October 15, 2011.

Once the race sells out, the cap will not be increased and there is no waiting list.


Thanks to those of you who have already signed up…it’s going to be a fun year!

Melinda Tate
Race Director

The course is extremely flat and a great one to set a PR on.

Estes better hop on this now to retain his title as the ‘Half King!’
