Run the Jackson River Scenic Trail Marathon

get more from BRO

We offer a Full Marathon this year along with a Half, 10k, 5k and 1 Mile Run. So, this fun event has something for everyone! The certified course will begin and end at the Intervale Trail Head on the Jackson River Scenic Trail in Covington, Virginia.

The trail follows an old railroad bed of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway. The course has a smooth crushed gravel surface and is mostly flat with some light hills. The trail follows its namesake river, winding its way through small communities, cultivated fields, and small patches of woodland. It’s common to see wildlife along the way.

Unique Awards will be given to the top 3 overall male and female finishers in each event. Age group awards are determined by participation.

The awards ceremony will be at Intervale Trail Head immediately after the race. Refreshments will be provided for all race participants. Take advantage of our Early Bird rates before May 6!
