Full Marathon – 26.2
Morgantown is known for its rolling hills and gorgeous views, and the Full Marathon course will not disappoint. Run 26.2 Almost Heavenly Miles through Morgantown–a challenging course that tests both physical and mental strength. With almost 2,000 feet of elevation gain, it is not being advertised as one of America’s 10 Fastest Courses, but will be a race with beautiful views and unique local flair that you will not soon forget. You will traverse through all 7 Wards of this unique city, experiencing quiet country roads, a run through the West Virginia University Campus, as well as a finish to a full marathon unlike any other.
Not ready for a Full Marathon? There is also a Mountain Mama 8K and a Morgantown Thirteener for you to run!
The out and back course will take you through unique and different neighborhoods in Morgantown, featuring festivals, bands, and spectators that will keep you motivated and smiling all the way back to the finish line.
Mountain Mama – 8k
Join us for the Mountain Mama 8K. This 8K (4.97 miles) road race will begin at the WVU Coliseum, starting with a fast launch down Patteson Drive before rolling through the Suncrest neighborhood behind Krepps Park, then back to the Coliseum. This is sure to be a great race to kick off a marathon to remember!
