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.
