Date Set for 2016 Morgantown Marathon

MORGANTOWN – Mark your calendars: a date is set for the second annual Morgantown Marathon.

Race weekend is scheduled for Sept. 17-18, 2016.

Race Director Jamie Summerlin said mid-September should again provide ideal weather for the marathon.

He said his team is already evaluating ways to make the second race better.

“It’s going to be an even better event this year,” said Summerlin. “We’re expecting to get 2,000 runners here. We want to get runners from all 50 states. We had runners from 36 states and six countries this past year, so we’re really looking forward to having a great participation.”

The inaugural race raised $65,000 for Operation Welcome Home.
