Do you have what it takes to conquer America's Toughest Road Marathon™?

Local runners have crafted one of the most challenging and beautiful marathons on the east coast. In 2010 the full marathon course included 3,076 feet of total elevation gain and 6,140 feet of total elevation change, but that just wasn't enough.

The 2013 course includes 3,710 feet of total elevation gain and 7,440 feet of total elevation change. Kind of gives new meaning to runner's high. Rumor has it there may be a few more feet of elevation change added to the 2014 course.

The uphill portions will test each runner's strength and endurance while the equally challenging downhill sections are sure to weed out those who are unprepared. The breathtaking views and stunning Blue Ridge Mountain scenery will offer some reprieve to runners as they persevere to the finish line! Are you up for the challenge of America's Toughest Road Marathon?
