Thousands Crossed the Finish Line for the 9th Annual Hershey Half Marathon
On Sunday, October 21 thousands of runners traveled far and wide to run in the sweetest half around. The 9th annual Hershey Half Marathon allowed runners to take in all Hershey has to offer. Solo runners and relay teams ran through Hersheypark and past iconic locations such as Highpoint Mansion, Milton Hershey School, Hershey Country Club, and down Chocolate Avenue where there is an exclusive Chocolate Aid station.
Hershey Entertainment & Resorts is proud to donate a portion of the proceeds to Children's Miracle Network. This year's Children's Miracle Netword child, Tyler Szajda and his family were in attendance sharing his life-saving story, running the race and greeting runners across the finish line. A truly special day for all. Scroll throughout the story to see more excitement and images.

Hershey Half Marathon #6 done! This half marathon was the most challenging mentally. I considered to have this my first DNF race at mile two but I took it one step at a time and finished the race. Thankfully my mom ran it with me and James was there to cheer me on! * * * * #halfmarathon #hersheypa #hersheyhalfmarathon #running #runner #runnergirl #runpa
