The Rivanna Greenbelt Marathon is a Boston Qualifier, officially certified by the USATF (VA14004TR). The course is 6.5 "loops" of the 4-mile out-and-back trail beginning at Riverview Park and following along the river on the Rivanna Greenbelt Trail. This is a fairly flat course with only 8 ft of elevation gain and 22 feet of elevation loss per "loop". Minimum elevation is 307 feet; maximum elevation is 327 feet. All runners must complete the course in 5.5 hours or less.
The Half Marathon is 3.25 "loops of the 4-mile out-and-back trail. The half course is NOT certified.
Please review the FAQ for details about this quirky and unique race (no awards, no medals, but you'll get a miniature Coney and a soft triblend long sleeve hoodie tshirt!)
