Blue Ridge Marathon

APRIL 22, 2017

The Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Marathon Series has earned its title as “America’s Toughest Road Marathon” by challenging runners with over 7,430 ft. in elevation change, more than any other road marathon in the U.S. This race is one of the few marathons that run along the famously scenic Blue Ridge Parkway, and proceeds from this non-profit event benefit the parkway and local charities. The full, half and 10k all prove equally challenging yet rewarding on this mountainous course, and all runners receive Farm to Feet socks, unique finishers’ medals, shirts and local craft beer at the festival-like finish in downtown Roanoke.

FARM TO FEET DOUBLE MARATHON

New for 2017!

The Blue Ridge Road Race Series will be adding the official Farm to Feet Double Marathon and Four Person Marathon Relay to the challenge offerings. While the double has been unofficial for years, the race will be acknowledging the amazing accomplishment for the first time with Farm to Feet Compression socks, support vehicles, official times, shirts, unique medals, and an awards ceremony. The four person relay will allow teams to tackle the elevation together with shuttles and team stations along the course.

America's Toughest Road Marathon

Technical features of our running socks

Friction Free Technology

Friction-Free Technology utilizes American-made nylon to keep your feet cool, dry, and protected from abrasion. Our PTFE-coated nylon yarn features an incredibly low coefficient of friction to prevent hotspots during extended activity, and its hydrophobic properties pull moisture away from your skin for effective cooling and a breathable feel.

Seamless Toe Closure

Advanced knitting techniques create a totally flat connection in the toe box, reducing bulk and eliminating blister-generating friction.

Merino Wool On Top Of Foot

Merino wool is soft, itch-free, naturally odor- and bacteria-resistant, cool in the summer and warm in winter. We source our 100% U.S. grown merino wool exclusively from sheep raised by American farmers on American farms.

A FIRST TIMER'S 100 MILE ULTRA

The 2016 Grindstone 100

Almost every ultra runner will agree that the concept of running 100 miles, or even 50, at one time in their life seemed ridiculous.  But that’s the thing about challenges.  The bigger and crazier the challenge the more fulfilling the accomplishment.

Last year, our ambassador Raelynn Zappulla completed her first 100-mile ultra at the Grindstone 100. The Philadelphia based athlete however didn’t enter without a little trepidation.

“As we stood listening to the countdown, I couldn't believe what I was about to do,” said Zappulla. “I knew tackling a hundred in my first year of ultra running would be quite the challenge and the Grindstone itself is one of the toughest hundreds on the East coast.”
