      EVENT DETAILS
      Grandfather Mountain Marathon

      Marathon The marathon begins at Kidd Brewer Stadium in Boone, NC at 7:00 am at an elevation of 3,333 feet and climbs to an elevation of 4,279 feet where it ends on Grandfather Mountain in Linville, NC. The course is mountainous and very scenic as it winds through the Blue Ridge Mountains. The course is run predominately on asphalt (3 miles of the course is on gravel). The race will finish at McRae Meadows during the Highland Games, the 2nd largest Highland Games in the world. So make sure you look good at least at the finish in front of those 10,000+ spectators ! NOTE: much of the course will be run on state highway where traffic cannot be stopped to accommodate the runners.

      6000 plus spectators!
