Danville Half Marathon and 10k

About

 
Semper Fi

Welcome to the 6th annual Danville Half Marathon and 10k. Both races are out and back, along the Iron Horse Trail, winding through the small towns of Danville and Alamo, California. We are pleased to be teaming up with the Semper Fi Foundation again and the Danville Veterans Community in an effort to raise awareness and money for the valiant that have fought for us and lost in some way. All proceeds from the race will be donated! Previous runs have raised over $15,000 for the Semper Fi Foundation.
