Register for the Morgantown Marathon!
You’re “Running” Out of Time…
The Morgantown Marathon is quickly approaching and with Greater Morgantown known for its rolling hills and gorgeous views, it’s drawing runners near and far to partake in its challenging course that tests both physical and mental strength.
Runners will travel through the seven wards of the City, experiencing quiet country roads, a run through the West Virginia University Campus, and a finish to a full marathon unlike any other. Yes, it’s hilly, but completing 26.2 “Heavenly Miles,” with almost 2,000 feet of elevation gain, is also very rewarding.
Races include the Full Marathon, Morgantown Thirteener and Mountain Mama 8K. Click here to view registration details for each.
On Saturday, September 21, runners will need to stop by Dick’s Sporting Goods on University Town Centre for the packet pick up between 10am – 7pm. Please note, a valid photo ID is required at pickup. Then, get a good night’s rest and be ready to run in the morning on Sunday!
The Morgantown Marathon is a proud supporter of the Non-Profit organization, Operation Welcome Home, which provides services and comfort to help veterans find employment. This program aims to alleviate common barriers faced by Veterans who have so selflessly served our Country and helps them transition into their civilian life.
