Friends and family, I am ecstatic to announce that I have been chosen by the Roanoke Outside Foundation to be an Ambassador for the Foot Levelers Blue Ridge race series. This race series consists of four race distances to choose from which include the 10K, Half, Full Marathon, and Double.

(Pictured below is the famous Roanoke Star that you will see when you reach top of Mill Mountain.  You will have the honor of seeing this beauty up close and personal regardless of which course you pick!)image3


Not only is this popular race known for it’s beautiful scenery, but it is famously known as one of the world’s TOUGHEST Marathons! In an article published on March 22, 2013, this race was ranked as the 8th toughest Marathon because “there is more than 7200 feet of elevation change over 26.2 miles” and it ranked #1 in “The World’s 13 Toughest Half Marathons” in an article which was written on August 24, 2014 by Carissa Liebowitz.



Next year’s race is scheduled forApril 22nd and will offer four (4) race distances– a 10k, half marathon, full marathon, and a double to choose from! Every runner gets **FREE** photos, a finisher medal, farm to feet socks, complimentary beer ticket, and live music at the finish! Folks that register by 3/20/2017 will also get a really cool shirt! (Trust me this WILL become your favorite race shirt!) J

Without question easily one can see why any of the distances offered in this challenging course is a bucket list race for runners everywhere and this is one you should NOT miss!

My goal as an ambassador for the Blue Ridge race series is to answer any questions you have, share my experiences in training and preparations for the upcoming race day, and to run a few contests in order to offer some really cool prizes between now and race day. So stay tuned and get ready to have some fun!!



Also, I have a discount code good for 15% off of this AWESOME race registration fee! Let me know when you are ready for it!!
