Join Soldier Marathon

The streets of both Fort Benning and the peaceful, serene setting of the Columbus Riverwalk form the backdrop for the brand-new Soldier Marathon, which makes its annual running through this southwest Georgia city in the fall, along an out-and-back course that starts and finishes at the Army installation’s new National Infantry Museum, which opened to the public in 2009.

Dedicated to the life, service and heroism of the infantrymen who have served the U.S. in war over the past two centuries, the 190,000-sq.-ft. museum hosts an interactive tour with galleries detailing the contributions of infantries in wars all the way back to the Revolutionary War, leading up to the wars today in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The museum is located just outside the gates of the Fort Benning Army installation in the park known as Patriot Park, and this is where the marathon start and finish.

Marathon course is certified as a Boston Marathon qualifier. The USATF Certification Number is USATF GA15094WC.

Course Highlights

The Soldier Marathon course is a 26.2 mile course that starts and finishes at the National Infantry Museum. The start line and finish line are on the Avenue of Flags along the east side of the National Infantry Museum. The first 7.5 miles of the course are on Ft. Benning. The remaining miles run north on the RiverWalk from Oxbow Meadows to Uptown Columbus, Georgia and the TSYS parking lot and then runs into Phenix City, Alabama via the 14th Street Pedestrian Bridge, and then returns over the Dillingham Bridge back into Columbus and runs south on the Riverwalk from the Trade Center back to the National Infantry Museum.
