Run the Rails?
The City of Union City and the Half Marathon Committee have announced that Union City will host “Run the Rails” annually.
Named after its rich history in the rail industry, race day consists of downtown fun for the whole family while also providing an exciting course for runners of all experience. While runners are on the course, friends and family can enjoy music in the park, food trucks, local boutiques, and specialty shops.
Run the rails is a 13.1 mile route with a four-hour time cap that starts and finishes in Historic Downtown Union City. It includes a half marathon, 10k, 5k, and 1 mile fun run event.
Find the fun in all of our additional activities.
