Do you want to run "America's Toughest Road Marathon??" If yes, then the Blue Ridge Marathon is for you! Boasting over 7000 feet of elevation across 3 mountains in Roanoke Virginia, not only tough but I would say one of America's most beautiful as well.
I ran this race with my husband last year after he won entry from a blogger. We were on a complete high for weeks after this race. Blue Ridge changed how we viewed marathons, mountains and running. We really felt it helped shaped our running this past year. You can read about our experience here
