The Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Marathon was created in 2010 by a committee of volunteers who were equally passionate about our running community, the outdoors, the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains that surround our region and of course helping others. What better way to showcase the beauty of our region than to host a marathon?

To highlight all our regions assets, the committee designed a one-of-a-kind course that summits at the top of three unique mountains, weaves through the streets of historic homes and ends in our eclectic downtown with great live music, craft beer and friends. Every time we convince someone to run our race we want them to feel like Roanoke is a second home, so our community, volunteers and staff go WAY above and beyond to ensure that the Blue Ridge will be one of the best race experiences you’ve ever had. While our course is known for its tough elevation change, it has also become widely recognized as one of the most friendly and well-run events in the country.

But don’t take our word for it! Check out all our BibRave reviews to see why people love Blue Ridge so much.

Plus unlike many large race series these days we aren’t taking home thousands of dollars each year in your hard earned cash. We donate every single penny from our race to non-profits, charities and civic organizations throughout the region.

AARON BLANKENSHIP's thoughts:

I ran the virtual 10K and it was a blast! Virtual races are what you make them, so I made this one harder than a normal run, but not all out like I do for an in person 5K or race of longer distance. The signup and options for the race a plentiful and the post race to upload your results is something every virtual race should do. It is quick and very user friendly and shows you your stats as soon as you submit your results. The swag looks great from what I've seen on the well made Blue Ridge website, since virtual runners' swag does not ship out until the end of the month I will have to wait to see the medal (The virtual race can be completed any day in April, which is also great to make it fit your schedule). I cant wait to try this race in person in the coming years, the scenery looks amazing!
