5 Reasons to Run the Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Double Marathon, Full Marathon, Half Marathon, or 10k
1. It’s for a good cause!
The Blue Ridge Marathon Series was created by a non-profit known as Roanoke Outside. Their mission is to connect people with the outdoors, engage them for a lifetime of recreation, as well as promoting an active and healthy lifestyle.
2. You are up for a challenge!
3. It’s more than just a marathon!
If you are not ready for the challenge of a running a full marathon up and down three mountains, maybe you are ready to take on the challenge of the Foot Levelers Half Marathon (which climbs up two mountains) or the Anthem Star 10k (with 2000 feet of elevation change). Even better, there is a 7.5 hour cutoff time for the half marathon – so it is walk-able! And if you are feeling even MORE AMBITIOUS – join up and run the official Double Marathon!
4. It’s a HIGHLY rated event!
