Event notes

Mathews Marathon and Half Marathon on October 16

The Event. Run along peaceful, rural backroads in beautiful Mathews County, Virginia. Enjoy the fast, flat course that winds through dirt, gravel and paved roads and past the serenity of one of Virginia's last great countrysides. The Marathon route will take you to 3 of the counties beaches; the Half Marathon will also lead you to a local beach. Registration will close upon reaching 200 total participants.

The Cause. Our local school athletes ability to train and compete has been seriously impacted by the recent health crisis - along with their ability to organize fundraising activities. Our club receives support from these local athletes and their parents during our events, and is paying back with cash and equipment donations. The race director for the Mathews Marathon has selected the local athletes as the recipients of this event's proceeds.

The Course. You will enjoy this FAST, FLAT course that winds around quiet backroads and through the town of Mathews. Stick around after the race and enjoy the weekly Farmers Market on the town's courthouse green. There is a time limit for this event: 3 hours for the half marathon & 6 hours for the full. Participants signed up for the full marathon who are not at the half point in 3 hours will be recategorized into the half marathon race.

The Cost. The cost for the full marathon is $50; the half marathon registration is $40. Note: to help limit the contact between participants & volunteers, there is no race day registration. Pre-registration also allows us to purchase the correct sizes and numbers of race day swag.

The Swag. All event participants will receive a commemorative hooded sweatshirt and finisher medal. Top finishers in the full & half marathons will be recognized along with age group categories for each event.
