Aderire Race 13.1 Roanoke
Part of a series of half marathon races that got their start in North Carolina, the Race 13.1 Roanoke Half Marathon makes its annual running this year here in this southwestern Virginia city that’s surrounded by the beautiful Appalachian Mountains and sits roughly at the half-way point of the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Race 13.1 returns to the Blue Ridge Mountains for the Friendship Health Race 13.1 Roanoke half marathon, 10k and 5k event in June. The race starts and finishes in beautiful downtown Roanoke along the river at Rivers Edge North, and the course will feature stretches of greenway along the picturesque Roanoke River!
Punti salienti del corso
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.
