If you’re tough enough to give it a go (and I know LOTS of you are), the Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Marathon, set in Roanoke, Va., and billed as America’s toughest road marathon, is offering up one reader a free entry. Not up for the full? There’s a half marathon option, too.
Let me tell you about this race, which promises to be spectacularly beautiful. You get to climb and descend (don’t forget that downhill part!) some 7,234 feet over the course of this race–that’s three mountains worth of amazing running. You know you want to get in on that, right? You’ve got six months to train with the race date set for April 20, 2013. Hill repeats, here you come!
If you’re not quite sure, take a look at the incredible footage from this race. I doubt you’ll be able to resist at least taking a chance at winning an entry:
To enter, simply let me know in a comment below that you’re tough enough for the challenge of this race. I’ll let random.org pick a winner next Wednesday, Oct. 17. Good luck!
