Event Information

Who was Sam Costa? The story of "Sam Costa" goes back to the 1960's, well before running had achieved the mainstream status it enjoys today. Sam was a Chicago police detective, who regularly traveled 200 miles to train and compete with friends. Sam became terminally ill and passed away in the early '70's. His friends felt that the most appropriate memorial would be to name their half marathon event after him. Now in its 44th year, the Sam Costa Half and Quarter Marathon is a USATF certified, Midwest tradition and the oldest annual race in Indiana.
