THE MARATHON COURSE
The Rivanna Greenbelt Marathon is a Boston Qualifier, officially certified by the USATF (VA14004TR). The course is 6.5 "loops" of the fairly flat 4-mile out-and-back trail beginning at Riverview Park and following along the river on the Rivanna Greenbelt Trail.
THE HALF MARATHON COURSE
The half is the same as the marathon except it is 3.25 "loops" of the 4-mile out-and-back trail and the final turnaround is .55 miles from the start/finish.
The half course is NOT certified.
In the past we’ve had either a 4 hour or 5.5 hour time limit on the course. We are currently debating what the time limit will be for future races.
