Choose Your Challenge-

The Notorious double marathon (sells out each year), the signature Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Marathon (more elevation change than any road race in the US), the half marathon, Anthem 10k, 4-person relay and Family 1 Miler. There truly is something for every level of runner. The Sunday Slow-K was added in 2019 and dubbed “America’s Slowest 5k”. This recovery run and camaraderie event has added a fantastic finale to an amazing race experience.



Local craft beer, live music, fantastic food and free massages (open to the public).

Join Fleet Feet Roanoke, our training team & race ambassadors on Friday to get primed for those mountains (free).

“America’s Slowest 5k”- Fun run features coffee, donuts, group stretches & a mimosa bar.
