WELCOME TO THE ROCKET CITY MARATHON

Come run the Rocket City Marathon. For years the Rocket City Marathon has been a premiere marathon event in the South. The Rocket City Marathon is conducted by the Huntsville Track Club and scores double points on the Running JournalGrand Prix XXIX Championship Circuit. If you have run the Rocket City Marathon in the past you know what a quality event this is. If you have never run this Huntsville tradition then this is the year to add our event to your schedule.

The Rocket City Marathon is more than just a race. It is an “event” built around the race. We work just as hard creating exciting activities to make your trip to the Rocket City fun as we do conducting a flawless race on a fast course to produce an enjoyable race that should yield your maximum performance. The carbo supper is excellent and we feed about 500 each year so be sure to give it a try. These and the other Friday activities are provided to encourage you to run your best.

New Race Course route will take you through Historic Downtown Huntsville, Huntsville Botanical Gardens and the Space and Rocket Center.

Course Highlights

Starting from the Von Braun Center and Big Spring Park, downtown Huntsville, AL, the course starts with a tour of downtown, running through the large antebellum homes of the Twickenham District and the downtown courthouse square before heading northeast to make a 10 mile loop through scenic residential streets and the historic districts of Old Town, Dallas Mill Village and Five Points. After returning to the downtown area, the course runs west to make an 11 mile loop through the southwest part of town, showcased by running beneath the rockets at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center and meandering through the Huntsville Botanical Gardens. Returning back downtown the course finishes inside the VBC Arena to a celebration with live music, food and fun indoors.
