Sports Backers Marathon

Registration now open!

Spring is right around the corner and we know the best way to get through the winter months of running is to have your next finish line in sight! We’re excited to bring you a custom race experience with the Sports Backers Marathon, featuring a full, half, 5k, and 4-person relay! Start and finish at Dorey Park, and run along the Virginia Capital Trail protected from traffic, and with course support! From March 11-13, you’ll be able to run the race of your choice, as well as pick your race day and start time. We’ll take care of the rest with onsite packet pick up, touchless bottle refill stations, timing, and of course great swag! Train confidently this winter and celebrate your hard work with us this March!
