Recreational running became popular in the 1970s, crested, and is now experiencing another boom. Runners World magazine reports that in 1990, there were an estimated 303,000 finishers nationwide in half-marathons (a 13.1 mile distance). In 2013, there were 1.96 million who crossed a half-marathon finish line.
