I absolutely LOVE Blue Ridge! This is as local a marathon distance race that I get at about an hour away. Last year I took on the marathon, but this year I opted for the half. It was half the distance, but had plenty of challenging climbs to get through.
I'm fortunate enough to be an ambassador through Blue Ridge for this race. I'm quite happy to be able to spread the word and try to help people be a part of such an event.
You won't PR here, but it's probably the closest thing to a perfect event that I've been a part of. The crowds are fantastic as is the race support. The SWAG is top notch. The post-race party is spectacular. The night time concert always rocks. If you're fortunate or fast enough to grab an award, they are the BEST. It's a railroad spike with some arms and legs welded on to look like a little runner person. So awesome.
I 100% recommend this race. It's an experience that you will not forget.
