About MCRRC Riley's Rumble Half Marathon & 8K

Riley’s Rumble Half Marathon will challenge even the best runners. Don’t be seduced by the lush bucolic countryside of Montgomery County. If you want the 3 H’s (hills, heat, and humidity), this is the race for you. It is a good workout if you’re preparing for a fall marathon but Riley’s Rumble is not a good idea for your first half marathon. As an alternative to running either race, consider volunteering and then running Parks Half Marathon (our ‘better half’) which takes place in early autumn when the weather is usually significantly cooler.

Typically, Riley’s Rumble weather is hot, humid, and sunny. Adjust your pace and expectations.

South Germantown Recreational Park



From the starting line on Central Park Circle inside the park, runners follow a course that takes them northward and then westward all the way to the first turnaround point on Barnesville Road, and then back down White Ground Road to the intersection with Old Buckbridge Lane, where they turn and make their way up to the second turnaround point roughly a mile up the road.

From there, runners follow the course they’ve already run for the first half all the way back to the finish line at South Germantown Park.
