Join Blue Ridge Marathon
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 is the ONLY marathon that runs along the famously scenic Blue Ridge Parkway, and proceeds from this non-profit event benefit the parkway and local charities. This marathon will be equally challenging yet rewarding on this mountainous course.
Roanoke’s Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Marathon takes runners on an out-and-back loop course that starts and finishes in downtown Roanoke and features towering and challenging hills through the city’s Mill Mountain Park.
