The Official Website of the Holy Half Marathon

We are excited to announce that the Holy Half Marathon will be taking place on April 15th, 2023! The race was capped at 1,700 runners, and we have opened up a waitlist. Registration is currently full for the race! If you are interested in adding your name to our waitlist, you can do so here (Waitlist is now closed!). We hope to see you at the race this year! If you were not able to register for the race this year but would still like to be involved, please consider volunteering! Fill out this form if you would like to be a volunteer!

If you registered for the race this year and decide that you can no longer participate, please email to request a refund!

The 2022 Holy Half took place on April 9 and race results are here. Thanks for a great race!

Together, we raised $45,000 to donate in an even split between our three charities -- Our Lady of the Road in South Bend, Misericordia in Chicago, and Girls on the Run of Michiana! Wow! Thank you, runners and volunteers! 

Returning after a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19, the Holy Half Marathon is one of the largest student-organized events at the University of Notre Dame. 1,700 runners participate annually, coming from the Notre Dame, Saint Mary's College and Holy Cross College campuses, the South Bend community, and the Irish fanbase and alumni network nationwide.

The Holy Half has truly become one of the greatest traditions at the University of Notre Dame. Runners take pride not only in training for and completing a 13.1-mile race, but also in making a difference to the South Bend community on behalf of the University.


Results for the 2017, 2018, and 2019 races can be found here.
