The Race

This marathon begins in Boone, NC on the the track at Appalachian State University’s Kidd Brewer Stadium. The marathon then winds through the breathtaking NC Blue Ridge Mountains, over the Blue Ridge Parkway, and up long steep climbs to McRae Meadows where you will be greeted by the sound of bagpipes and an estimated 5,000 spectators.

This unique marathon will provide challenges that are overcome by the rewards.
