FOOT LEVELERS BLUE RIDGE MARATHON
RACE DAY: APRIL 21, 2018
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 runs 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 are rewarded with a unique finishers’ medals, a tech-tee, live music and local craft beer at the festival-like finish in downtown Roanoke. This race would not be possible without the support of our title sponsor, Foot Levelers.
This event is owned and operated by the Roanoke Outside Foundation whose mission to make outdoor activity and environmental stewardship a core component of our community’s lifestyle by promoting a “conservation through recreation” philosophy.

Last year was my first year and I LOVED it! It was very challenging due to the fact I upgraded from 10k to half marathon the week before the race (not smart), had female issues, and it rained THE ENTIRE DAY. I am not a big fan of running in the rain… but I did it! And I’m SO PROUD of myself..and I’m doing it again!
