about the heartland 39.3 series
KC Running Company, the race director for these events, created the Heartland 39.3 Series to showcase each of these great half marathons and to give half marathon fanatics a special challenge for 2012!
Those who take the challenge, and complete each of the three events, will receive special recognition, including a special medal in addition to the medal from each of the Series races. That's right, Series participants will end up with four medals (and these are nice medals!), three technical shirts and lots of great memories! Series participants will also be able to compete for cash prizes for top combined times for the three Heartland 39.3 Series events and all Series finishers will qualify for, or increase their standing in, the national Half Fanatics Club (www.halffanatics.com).
You can sign up for all three half marathon events at the same time where indicated above or below, or sign up for each event individually. Either way you qualify for the Heartland 39.3 Series beneifts once your complete all three 2012 events. We expect more than 5,000 individuals to participate in one or more of the Heartland 39.3 Series events, but only the heartiest half marathoners will complete all three! Be on of the few and take the challenge!
