Historic Half Start and Finish
Conquer Hospital Hill
The massive stars and stripes archway is the launching pad for Historic Half participants, who gain inspiration from the Town Crier before charing onto the course following firing of the musket and the blast of the Howitzer.
Runners reach the massive stars and stripes archway signaling mission complete, where Marines prepare to present the symbol of accomplishment-a finisher medal. Now decorated, the runners proceed to Finish Festival activities, booths and post-event celebrations just outside the Fredericksburg Expo & Conference
