Here is a link to the NEW web pages for the Nittany Valley Half Marathon:

"I thought the course was good and challenging. I wouldn't change a thing." ---Rob Guissanie

"You have redefined the meaning of 'somewhat challeging'." ---Jerry Heinz

"It's a very tough course, especially after about mile 7. The last mile is designed to make you see God." ---Marty Mazur

"I was looking for God during the last mile, but I didn't see him. I guess he finished ahead of me too."
--- Albert Mabus, last male finisher at the 2001 NVHM
“Then came the middle of the course and the big downhill after it — I knew it’s bad but just couldn’t resist full speed — followed by the series of ups and downs that made me feel like I was on a trail event, without the mud, and then came the last mile of ascending, that was a good slap on my happy, downhill running face.” --- Veselin Lefterov from Bulgaria

The 35th Annual Nittany Valley Half-Marathon will be held on Sunday, December 2, 2018. Start time is 10:00 AM. Race day packet pickup starts at 8 AM at race headquarters, which is inside the Snider Ag Arena. The course has been newly redesigned for this year's race, with less looping behind the Ag Arena at the start, and a somewhat longer excursion through Houserville. But all your favorite hills are still there, including the "spiral of death" at the end of the race!

Registration information coming soon.

"I remember winning the 1992 race in wicked conditions. I have
to credit the victory to the fact that the PSU Team did not show up
for a change. As a typical runner I can remember the details of every
race well; the first few miles were on snow covered roads until we got out
near the airport. At that point the roads were clear as an unfortunate
result of some really nasty cross winds. I believe Boyd Brumbaugh
finished second that year, but I'm not certain. I remember running with
him during the the mid to latter half of the race.”
