The Rivanna Greenbelt Marathon is officially certified (VA14004TR) and a Boston Qualifier. The course is 6.5 "loops" of the fairly flat 4-mile out-and-back trail beginning at Riverview Park and following along the river on the Rivanna Greenbelt Trail. The Half Marathon is 3.25 "loops” of the 4-mile out-and-back trail. Water stops are located at the start/finish and 2 mile turnaround. All runners receive official timing splits every 2 miles by Blue Ridge Timing, a uniquely handmade miniature Coney (our race mascot), and a soft tri-blend long sleeve hoodie shirt. Although we do not offer awards or medals, we will have grab bag prizes from our sponsors for finishers and volunteers in 2022. Please review the FAQ for details about this quirky and unique race. All runners must complete the course in 5.5 hours or less.
