get more from BRO

The Blue Ridge Parkway will be the site of a new marathon next year for the first time in the road’s history. On April 24, 2010, the Blue Ridge Marathon will take off from Roanoke and cover some of the Parkway’s toughest sections in Virginia. The race, which will also feature a half-marathon option, is being directed by Ronny Angell of the longstanding regional outfit Odyssey Adventure Racing.

“We wanted to make this more than just another small city marathon,” said Angell. “The difficulty of this course makes it special. It will attract people from across the country.”

BRO will bring you more details about the race in a future issue.
