Morgantown Marathon – Voted Best of Morgantown 2016

Best Run/Walk

Morgantown Marathon

More than 1,100 racers from more than 30 states participated in the first Morgantown Marathon Weekend in September 2015. Saturday’s Inaugural Mile and Mountain Mama 8K built excitement for Sunday’s Thirteener half-marathon and Tour Morgantown full marathon. Runners reported the “26.2 Almost Heavenly Miles” through Morgantown’s seven hilly wards to be a fun challenge. Organizer and Marine veteran Jamie Summerlin of cross-USA Freedom Run fame did it up right: An official Morgantown Marathon time qualifies for the Boston Marathon, and race proceeds go to hometown veteran support group Operation Welcome Home. The second annual marathon weekend takes place September 17-18,
