The Charlottesville Marathon/Half Marathon is truly a MUST DO race! Voted one of the top ten best Marathons in Runners’ World and one of the most scenic marathons in the USA by Running Times!

After more than a decade, the Charlottesville Marathon has become a legitimate destination race. The course takes you on a tour of Charlottesville, from the hip downtown mall to the gorgeous outlying wine country. The course isn’t flat, but it’s not tough either. The biggest hill is early on at mile six, before a vineyard. Other than that, it’s all rolling. “My favorite part of the course is the section along the Rivanna River, between mile 23 and 26,” says race director Francesca Conte. “You’re almost at the end, and the river gives you a boost exactly when you need it.”
