Lace your shoes for the Bethel half marathonWritten by Admin
The popular Bethel half marathon and 5K race is set for Saturday, Oct. 8, the 18th version of this event.
Both races will begin simultaneously at Bethel Middle School on Sonoma Road at 8:30 a.m., and the courses will take runners along the rolling farmlands and historic sites in Bethel with the added treat of the fall colors on the trees.
The Bethel Rural Community Organization uses all the proceeds of the race to help support their farmland and historic preservation efforts, MANNA food distribution, Bethel school activities, volunteer fire departments, as well as benevolence to needy families and other worthy causes in the Bethel community. Post race award ceremonies include refreshments of home-made soups and baked goods.
