Marathons USA - Which One is a Good Fit for You?

The US is one of the greatest nations for marathons. Numerous of the elite marathon athletes come from America. There are so many opportunities for runners that if you took the vast number of marathons held throughout the year and spaced them out evenly, it would equal about a race a day. Some of the world’s most iconic marathons attract people from around the globe, such as the Boston and Chicago marathon, but there are many lesser-known ones that are just as spectacular. 

Fun and creative races can be found nationwide. With a countryside that is so expansive and unique, the best way to take it all in is by strapping on your shoes and hitting the pavement. Whether your goal is a marathon, a half marathon or an ultra marathon, America is truly the land of opportunity.

From qualifying runs like the Boston Marathon to the New York City Marathon, which has the largest participation rates, there is no lack of iconic marathon favourites for people from all walks of life.

The Big Sur Marathon, in California, is considered one of the most scenic runs of any event in the world. Running along the coastline, you can see everything from the waves of the Pacific Ocean to the Redwoods.

Or, try your hand at the Rock n’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon. It is the one time where what happens in Vegas, doesn’t have to stay in Vegas. You can announce your race times to anyone who will listen.

If you are looking for an exotic marathon getaway, the Honolulu Marathon is the one to choose. And, for the kid at heart, the Walt Disney World Marathon is a great destination not just for a marathon, but also to bring the entire family along to cheer you on.
