About the Race
Raleigh is often described as "a park with a city in it." The marathon will take runners through the city's downtown core, which has undergone a $2 billion renaissance, and over serene trails of the celebrated Capital Area Greenway System. From urban renewal to creekside tranquility, runners will experience what Forbes considers the #6 Best City for Singles and #2 Best City for Business, and one of Runner's World magazine’s Great Destinations Off the Beaten Path.
