I often post about all the great inexpensive HMs near me so I figure I'll post about an expensive one for a change :-)

shenandoahhalfmarathon.com

In Virginia, the Shenandoah HM is only an 1.5 hour drive from me and, although it's on pavement, it looks kinda pretty and it's hilly so I'd consider it if not for the price: $99. Ooh. And that's the early price which you can only get if you register 189 days in advance. After that, it goes up to $124 and for the last two months: $149.

No explanation why it's so expensive. It appears to be all on public roads and it's not even in Shenandoah National Park proper. (There's a checkbox on the registration forcing you to acknowledge that!)



One interesting thing: It's a cup-free race. They'll give you a hydrapouch (free) or you can use your own waterbottle (but must pay $3).

Sigh.
