What is the Jump off Rock Half & 10k?

An endurance running event like none other, the Inaugural Jump Off Rock Half Marathon presented by Hunter Subaru, will be one of the fastest half marathon races in the south and will run “downhill to downtown.” 

The in-person Half Marathon is SOLD OUT. We have the virtual half marathon option if you missed getting into the in-person race, you can also sign up for the waitlist! There are a few spots left in the 10k!

The point-to-point, half marathon begins at Jump off Rock, a national landmark and the Town of Laurel Park’s highest peak, and finishes in the heart of downtown Hendersonville on Main Street. This gently downhill and scenic 13.1 mile course is not only fast, it also has breathtaking views. Half Marathoners will wind their way downhill through the beautiful back-roads of Laurel Park then on historic city streets and around Hendersonville’s Osceola Lake before heading into downtown Hendersonville. The point-to-point race and the scenic course are sure to bring PRs and mountain memories to last a lifetime.

10k runners will start their race at the base of the Town of Laurel Park at the YMCA in Hendersonville. They will join in on the half marathon route at about the half-way point with half marathoners. The 10k route is paved surfaces and moderately flat with a couple gentle rollers. The 10k runners will run on historic city streets, around the Hendersonville’s Osceola Lake and back to downtown Hendersonville.

Both races will finish at the same location in Historic Downtown Hendersonville on Main Street. 

The 2021 races are designated safe races, with pre-race temperature and COVID screenings, wave starts and social distanced measures will be in place throughout the event. Limited spots are available.
