With a reputation as “America’s Toughest Road Marathon,” you might think that the Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Marathon is only for hard-core racers. But with a race weekend that includes everything from a double marathon to a relay race to a 10K as well as a kids’ 1-miler, this event has something for everyone. What makes this race really stand out though is its unique Slow-K walk/run. Held the day after the races, runners are encouraged to come out, grab a cup a coffee and a doughnut, and slowly walk along the 5K course, talking with other participants and enjoying a post-race stretch. It’s the perfect way to celebrate a fun and challenging race weekend!
