About The Capital 10-Miler
This 10 mile race benefits many area arts organizations. The event will start and finish on City Island, with the course including the riverfront, Capital Area Greenbelt, and the scenic bridges over the Susquehanna.
“Each year, the race attracts a lot of interest,” reports Mary Lou Harris, founding race director, who is a local marathon runner and regional arts supporter. “600 runners, on average, register to run and we expect more each year.”
Registrants over the years included runners from several Mid-Atlantic and New England states as well as local and regional participants.
Registrations begin early in the year and are limited.
The Capital 10-Miler is administered by Open Stage of Harrisburg, a not-for-profit professional regional theatre, funded, in part, by the Cultural Enrichment Fund, the capital region's united arts fund. Open Stage of Harrisburg is a Constituent of Theatre Communications Group (TCG), the national organization for American theatre.
Capital 10-Miler has an alternate course this year, providing a course the runners will surely enjoy.
Our Founding Race Director Mary Lou Harris along with Carol Varano and other runners, devised an alternate route, attempting to minimize interaction with traffic. Special thanks for their efforts! We know the runners will really enjoy this course.
