2024 Wilson Creek Half Marathon


Saturday, July 13th | Lenoir, NC

The Wilson Creek Half Marathon will be held on July 13th, 2024 with a great course that gives you a great chance to see the Wilson Creek Recreational Area!

The Scream Half Marathon is now the Wilson Creek Half Marathon, honoring the river that spans the entire course.  What hasn’t changed is the same incredible scenery, post-race experience, and expert management. Glory Hound Events keeps the same course they unveiled in 2022 to great reviews by both their runners and the US Forest Service.  They look forward to seeing their loyal runners again and meeting new friends who will experience running in the Wilson Creek Recreation Area for the first time.
