In New Jersey that designation goes to the Asbury Park Half Marathon.

According to Emily Faherty the article’s author describing the Asbury Park Half, “This flat and fast race is in the land of Bruce Springsteen, with local icon Tillie as its funny-faced mascot. You’ll run through the small area beach towns, along the historic boardwalk and finish with the “RunAPalooza” post-race party.”

Some other half marathons named in the article included: The New York City Half, The Napa to Sonoma Wine Country Half, The Disney Princess Half Marathon, Rock ‘n’ Roll New Orleans Half, and the “Gore-Tex” Philadelphia Half Marathon. Some pretty good company.
