Announcement: Blue Ridge Marathon Ambassador!

I've officially been chosen as an ambassador for the 2017 Blue Ridge Marathon in Roanoke, VA. This year's races will be held on April 22, 2017 and there are multiple race options:
  • Foot Levelers Full Marathon
  • Foot Levelers Half Marathon
  • Anthem Star 10k
There will also be a newly created double marathon and a marathon relay, truly something for everyone!

This will be my first time doing this race, and after handling the elevation change at Grandfather Mountain Marathon in July (7,004'), I'm looking forward to another major challenge next year. This race boasts over 7,430' of elevation change, including 3 mountains to ascend and then descend - Roanoke Mountain, Peakwood Mountain and Mill Mountain - and has the most elevation change of any road race in the US, hence the "toughest" road marathon status!

I'll be posting more about these races and how I'm planning to train through the winter months for this early season race over the next 6 months. Ready to commit to one of the Blue Ridge races?
