Christmas on the 

Country Music Highway Half Marathon

On the first weekend of December every year Paintsville really puts on the show with the annual Christmas Festival.  Paintsville Rotary and the Johnson County Kiwanis are proud participants in this festival.  All race fees are used by the clubs to provide for international and local charity functions.  Whether it is eradicating polio on the international scale, or providing shoes to the students that need them in the local school system this event is one that keeps giving after the race is over.

Packets may be picked up on the morning of at the Johnson County Health Department starting at 6:45 a.m. or the evening before at the Paintsville Ramada Inn  from 7:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m.

 Age group awards in both races male/female divisions.  Age group splits depend on number of runners per race, ten year splits with up to 150 runners, after 150 runners five year splits.
