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 a dozen local charities every year. The full, half and 10k all prove equally challenging yet rewarding on this mountainous course, and all runners are rewarded with free socks, unique finishers’ medals, shirts and local craft beer at the festival-like finish in downtown Roanoke.
