To no surprise, the number of nominations and votes that rushed in for the Top 20 Marathons in America far outnumbered all other categories. The 26.2 mile distance continues to be one that excites and inspires the runner in all of us! What became clear is that it takes a village to put on a spectacular Marathon, as many of you praised the communities and the volunteers alongside the race organizers. Marathons have now become a reflection of the local culture, and as runners we love to use a good race-cation to experience what a town has to offer.
Below is a list of the Top 5 Marathons ranked in order, and the remainder of the Top 20 list in alphabetical order.
