This is a great event. If you are from Roanoke it gives you a chance to compete against the home town folks to see who’s top dog. If you aren’t from Roanoke it gives you the chance to see 80% of the trails of the park that will be well … MORE

    The course is described on the race website as challenging, which is almost an understatement. There is almost 3,500 feet total elevation gain on the course, much of it in one climb up Brushy Mountain. To complicate things, there are two very strict intermediate cutoffs. If you don’t make the cutoffs, then you are diverted onto a shorter course and aren’t allowed to finish the marathon, so this is not a race for the velocity challenged. Registration includes a modestly sized medal for finishers, and a picnic lunch at the finish. I would only recommend if you are up for a challenge or want to get the feel of what an ultramarathon is like.
