About Scottsboro Half Marathon

Scottsboro Half Marathon: A quality race with a fun filled atmosphere!

Welcome to the Scottsboro Half Marathon, the site of an early Spring half marathon that will offer a challenging and fun run course for athletes of all levels of fitness. The Scottsboro Half Marathon will be held at Goose Pond Colony Resort, an outdoor recreation destination that offers world class dining, boating, golf, triathlons and running events. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned athlete, this half marathon will offer you the chance to finish a fun, family-friendly event and set your own "personal record."
For many years, Scottsboro has been home to a number of athletic events which have showcased the natural beauty of the area. These events include the Carlos Serrano 5k, Frank Maples Triathlon, Frantic Frog Triathlon and most recently the Goosepond Island Half Distance Triathlon. 

The Scottsboro Half Marathon will continue the tradition of offering a small town feel to athletes who come here to take part in one of our signature events. It’s easy to see why Scottsboro is quickly becoming a vacation destination for athletes who love the outdoors. Nestled within the Sequatchie Valley, Scottsboro is situated along the banks of the Tennessee River and Guntersville Lake.

We look forward to helping you reach all of your half marathon goals.

Goose Pond Park



The Scottsboro Marathon offers a scenic course that winds through Goosepond Colony and the surrounding neighborhoods. The course will pass a golf course, marina and several bodies of water which will offer runners a chance to enjoy the natural beauty on display.


Runners are set to follow an out-and-back course for the race that will start and finish in Goose Pond Colony Park, home to a golf course and lakeside neighborhoods here along the shores of Lake Guntersville, part of the Tennessee River.

From there, they’ll head north along Ed Hembree Drive past the golf course and within sight of the water for the first mile, and then head east and north into the neighborhoods along the lake.

The race, which follows a largely flat, forgiving route with only gently rolling hills, features a pair of out-and-back loop stretches around the middle and second half of the race.

After the second loop around Peninsula Drive, the route heads back toward Island Drive and Goosepond Drive for the home stretch, which heads back along Ed Hembree Drive to the finish line back in Goose Pond Park.
