Rivers Edge North opposite River’s Edge Sports Complex on Wiley Drive



Situated in the Roanoke Valley to the west of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the city of Roanoke is known as the "Star City of the South" and features the prominent Roanoke Star on Mill Mountain. The Appalachian Trail, the Blue Ridge Parkway and a wine making region are nearby contributing to the city being been named one of the best outdoor towns on the East Coast. The numerous attractions for visitors of all ages and interests will make for a great weekend before and after the race!


Runners will start opposite the River’s Edge Sports Complex on Wiley Drive on the other side of the river, which lies nearly a stone’s throw from the banks of the Roanoke River.

From there, runners will start off by crossing the bridge over the river and then they’ll join the Roanoke River Greenway, a running, walking and biking trail that will one day stretch more than 30 miles from western Roanoke County through the cities of Salem and Roanoke all the way to the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Most of the race — all but a few miles — unfolds along this riverside trail, which makes the course fast and flat nearly all of the way. The only real hilly stretches runners can expect to encounter lie around the mile 4 marker, where the course veers off the trail and onto Underhill Avenue. But it’s really the same hill, as runners will hit it both going out and coming back on this out-and-back course.

After that, runners cross over the river again and run alongside Tinker Creek until they make their way into Fallon Park, where the half marathon mid-way turnaround point lies. Once they make the turn, they retrace their steps along the route they’ve just run, all the way back to the River’s Edge Sports Complex for the race finish.
