Roanoke, VA

In celebration of the 75th Anniversary of the Blue Ridge Parkway, the inaugural Blue Ridge Marathon will be run on April 24, 2010. The building of the Blue Ridge Parkway was an amazing feat as anyone who completes this marathon will see.

Blue Ridge Marathon Local runners have crafted one of the most challenging and beautiful marathons on the east coast. The full marathon course includes 3,076 feet of total elevation gain and 6,140 feet of total elevation change. The uphill portions will test each runnerís 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 are sure offer some reprieve to runners as they persevere to the finish line!

Not only does the course include beautiful mountain scenery, it also offers an iconic START and FINISH in front of two well-known and historic locations in downtown Roanoke: The Taubman Museum of Art and the historic Hotel Roanoke.

We like club websites that offer features and resources for members as well as non-members. The Little Rock Roadrunners website delivers:

  • List of several weekly group runs.
  • Places to run - list of area running routes.
  • Newsletters dating back to 1979!
If you are going to be in the Little Rock area, check out their site to find a place to run, or a group to run with.

Want your club featured here? If your site has a neat, clean layout, is easy to navigate, and is a great running resource for members as well as non menbers, you could be featured in an upcoming newsletter.
