I think 6 is the cheapest I've paid and that's for a 10k. The most I've paid is 60 for a Tough Mudder event!

TIMOTHY, The $135 for Baltimore is the late price. To be realistic (since many big races sell out before those late prices go into effect) and to compare apples to apples, we're comparing early prices only.

So Baltimore HM is eclipsed by Zooma Annapolis HM (posted earlier). Also in Maryland, Riley's Rumble, although a bargain (and a great race!), is not as cheap as the NCR HM (also posted earlier). Surprised you haven't done NCR since it's so close to where you live!

These are only races I have run.

MD: Baltimore Running Festival - $135
MD: Riley's Rumble - $20.

Overall, the Walt Disney World Marathon -- $190 (half is the same price)
and it was the Coll Island Half Marathon in Scotland -- 15. I know, the conversion rate takes it over $20, but still that "15" looks pretty good, especially when you consider that all the other races over there are comparably priced in as we pay in $.

I'm not sure if its the cheapest in NY, but at $15, The Tromptown Run in DeRuyter NY is worth every penny. It is also run at 6:00 P.M. so no suffering from the mid-August sun.


You don't need to beat anyone else to be a winner.

I don't think my races have been cheap, but the most expensive? California Disneyland Avengers - $190. It sold out on the very first day, though, so I guess it's not overpriced.

We've discussed biggest/smallest HMs. Now it's time for most/least expensive! Let's make it by state. (If not a state, improvise. :-)

Please only identify races that are open to the public with online results.

For the most expensive races, use the earliest (i.e., cheapest) prices. For the least expensive races, use the nondiscounted prices. (No coupon rates, no special deals for club members, etc.) If you only know one (you just do cheap races), just submit that one. If you're not certain you can identify the highest/lowest in your state, that's ok. Post it anyway. We have to start somewhere!

Insights explaining the low/high prices for particular races are welcome :-)

I'll start:

DC: $5 Gar Williams HM, $175 Nike Women's HM
MD: $6 NCR HM, $105 ZOOMA Annapolis Women's HM

Note: Both of these "Women's" HMs are open to men.
