First things first: I'm an ambassador for this race. I'm an ambassador because of how much I love this race. I've run it the past 5 years (half marathon distance) and it's one of the only races I return to each year.
Full disclosure up front: I won a relay entry into the Blue Ridge Marathon from RunChat on Twitter. That said, nothing about that influenced my thoughts on the event, other than making it more realistic to actually go.
Look forward to this every year! It's You and your goals! With friends? Solo? Doesn't matter! You meet so many interesting people from all over the world ; HERE in our little town! Just mind blowing! Come... test yourself.
