Oorah to all the runners who ran 13.1, 5ive or both during 2018 Historic Half Weekend. In addition to the challenge of Hospital Hill, runners had to overcome the climbing temperatures that escalated throughout the morning. The Marines salute you for your dedication and commitment. Special thanks to the host community of Fredericksburg and all the amazing volunteers. 
Finisher results , split-times and downloadable, printable finisher certificates can be accessed through the results page of the Historic Half webpage. For the first time, half marathon finishers may customize their finisher certificates with special badges including first timer, Marine spouse, Iron Miler and more.
A highlight of the finish line was the engagement of Historic Half finisher Amanda Willging to Chet-Tyler Cary as she completed the event. Cary got down on one knee to ask her to marry him after she crossed the finish at 2:38:01. Tears of joy were shared as Willging added an engagement ring to her finisher bling.
Crossing the Line
Runners from all 50 states and 14 countries converged in Fredericksburg, VA to #RunWithTheMarines on the second hottest day in Historic Half history.
