      EVENT DETAILS
      Jackson River Scenic Trail Marathon, Half Marathon, 10k, and 5k

      The Jackson River Scenic Trail Marathon is held on one of the most scenic trails in the country.  The Jackson River Scenic Trail follows its namesake river, winding its way between Intervale, just north of Covington, to Smith Bridge Trail Head following an old railroad bed of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway (Hot Springs Branch) and passes through small communities, cultivated fields, and small patches of woodland along the way. It's common to see wildlife from the trail (birds, turtles, raccoons, rabbits, ground hogs, and deer).  Our course is on the smooth crushed gravel surface of The Jackson River Scenic Trail.

      The trail is mostly flat with some light hills. All finishers will receive a medal.  Strollers will be allowed in the 5k event and will start in the back of the group at the start line.  The course is certified by USATF as a Boston Marathon qualifying marathon race.

      Coinciding with the annual Covington Cork and Pork Festival BBQ in Covington, VA everyone is encouraged to stay following the race and visit this Kansas City Barbeque Society sanctioned event.  While the barbeque will stand front and center as the centerpiece of this festival, there will be entertainment, a wine tasting event, and children activities.
