Reston Runners will be hosting the 6th annual Runners Marathon of Reston on Sunday, April 8, 2018. The event includes a marathon, half marathon, 4-leg marathon relay and now a 2-leg half marathon relay.
New Relay Event!
We have added a 2-person half marathon relay option - runners will follow the half marathon course and exchange the baton with the marathon relay teams. Each leg is approximately 10K. This event is perfect for walkers since participants need only to maintain a 25 minute/mile to complete the event on time.
The racecourse has some hills and turns, and provides runners a mixture of fast downhill road running, beautiful paved trails, and some lightly challenging uphill sections. The course is a 13.1 mile loop;marathoners run the course twice.
We provide a free pre-race pasta dinner for runners and volunteers during packet pickup, and an extensive post-race feast for all participants, volunteers, and their families.
The race starts and finishes at South Lakes High School with a comfortable indoor space (Flush toilets! Coffee! Showers!). The course is amply supported with eager volunteers, porta-potties, race-course food, and Gatorade.
