Blue Ridge Marathon

Do you have what it takes to conquer America's Toughest Road Marathon™?

Local runners have crafted one of the most challenging and beautiful  marathons on the east coast. In 2010 the full marathon course included  3,076 feet of total elevation gain and 6,140 feet of total elevation  change, but that just wasn't enough.

The 2013 course includes 3,710 feet of total elevation gain and 7,440  feet of total elevation change. Kind of gives new meaning to runner's  high. Rumor has it there may be a few more feet of elevation change  added to the 2014 course.

The uphill portions will test each runner's strength and endurance  while the equally challenging downhill sections are sure to weed out  those who are unprepared. The breathtaking views and stunning Blue Ridge  Mountain scenery will offer some reprieve to runners as they persevere  to the finish line! Are you up for the challenge of America's Toughest Road Marathon?
