UPDATE 10:30AM MARCH 20th:

The 2013 Quincy Half Marathon, originally slated for March 10, has been rescheduled for Sunday, May 5.

After communicating with several fellow race directors, business leaders, city officials, sponsors, vendors, volunteers and many, many, many runners, race officials have decided that it’s best to reschedule the event and a new permit has now been secured from the city.
The industry standard in this situation is that the event is simply not held and all proceeds remaining after expenses such as advertisements, food, registration costs, shirt production, permitting, and other fees, etc., are speedily, and without ceremony, donated to charity. 
Honoring the wishes of the great majority of the runners and others who communicated with race officials, we will disregard industry standards and instead move ahead to May 5, allowing us to produce a road race worthy of all our loyal runners and also maximize our donations to Quincy’s youth.
Proceeds benefit the Quincy Track Club and the cross-country and track programs at the two city high schools and five middle schools as well as contributing to the South Shore YMCA, the Dana Farber Marathon Challenge and other worthy endeavors, completing the charitable mission at the heart of our efforts.
The March 8 snowfall and the subsequent concerns that arose regarding public safety were factors well beyond the control of race officials, but we appreciate the difficult decision the Quincy Police were forced to make for the well-being of runners and the public at-large. We hope you now support our decision.
Thank you for your thoughtful comments and consideration during this process.
Here are your options:
* You are welcome and encouraged to run Sunday, May 5 — if so, you are already registered. 
* You may also defer your entry to next year. To do this, please reply to this email with, “defer to 2014” no later than 5PM Sunday, March 31st and we will transfer your entry. 
Race registration for new May 5 entries re-opens Wednesday, March 20th
Sincerely yours,
Quincy Half Marathon



UPDATE 2:30PM FRIDAY, MARCH 8th:


Sorry Runners, it's official We have just gotten word from Quincy PD that the race will not be taking place this Sunday. This is in the interest of public safety, decisions regarding the postponement date need to be worked out with all concerned parties, we will keep you abreast of the situation here and on the web site. An Email to all registered runners will be sent as well.

Thank you for your patience and understanding!!
