Last year, I had the opportunity to participate in one of my favorite race weekends to date, the Blue Ridge Marathon in Roanoke, Virginia. I ran the half marathon this year after winning an entry from David‘s blog, but as I annouced recently, I am taking no prisoners in 2013 as I take on the challenge of the FULL….and I want YOU to join me on APRIL 20, 2013 too!!

No, I am serious! How serious, you ask? Well, as I previously mentioned, there’d be a lot of updates from me about this race because I am SO stoked to announce that I am an official Blue Ridge Marathon blogger – which means a lot of things…but most important to you, it means I have A FREE ENTRY to share with YOU!

The Blue Ridge Marathon is not for the faint of heart….check out this video to see what I mean:

After seeing that, I am SURE you are interested! And entering to win YOUR free entry (to the half or full marathon) is super easy – all you have to do is answer this question: why do you want to run the Blue Ridge Marathon?

This contest will be open through Saturday, October 6 at 11:59 PM – I will announce the winner on October 8th on my Monday morning post.

So, why do YOU want to run the Blue Ridge Marathon?


  1. I want to do this marathon because I was born in the area and have family still living there. I love the mountains and I think the challenge would be fun 🙂

  2. I would LOOOVE to run the Blue Ridge (Half) Marathon because I love the Blue Ridge Mountains. I’ve only driven on the BRP once, but I would really like to experience it again. My dream is to live in the mountains someday! Plus, I love the challenge of some “hills”!! 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. I want to run it because I am dying to run a destination marathon. This would be perfect! Some of my favorite non-running memories are in the Blue Ridge Mountains and I am anxious to add this event as my favorite running memory!

  4. I would love to be able to return to the Blue Ridge Mararhon again for the challenge of running up that beautiful mountain. I don’t even mind the 9hr drive from central Alabama to get there!

  5. I’ve never been, and don’t even know where this race is at, but I will have completed my first full marathon this October 21 and am looking for more challenging races. Also I was challenged by a friend to complete this race, and I love a good challenge!

  6. I’ve said so many times this year that I don’t think I want to run a full! I’m not sure when it how that changed but somehow it has. My husband and I have a goal to race a half in every state and we haven’t run in VA yet… And surely the full would count in our quest right??

  7. I would love to run this race as it would be a destination race for me and I get to bring the family and discover a new place in Virginia that I haven’t made it to yet. Last week I ran a trail half marathon with similar incline stats, and this looks like the next challenge for me. Well that and Pikes Peak!

  8. I would love to (attempt) to run the Blue Ridge (Half) Marathon! 🙂 I have never been to Virginia and what better excuse to visit? It sounds very challenging, but fun and scenic.

  9. I want to do this marathon to be able to say I’ve run and conquered those blasted mountains! 😉

  10. It would be great to have a weekend getaway in the mountains…..a reason to take a vacation!

  11. Running the BRM would be an awesome way to celebrate my birthday! (It’s also a good time of year to escape Seattle’s drizzly rain this Southern girl hasn’t yet gotten used to & to visit family in VA.)
