The 2015 Event Has Sold Out
Registration has closed for the 2015 C&O Canal Towpath Marathon and Half Marathon. Altis Endurance Sports is excited about the enthusiasm for the 2015 race. For 2016 the initial plan is to request additional registration slots to allow more runners to have fun on the Towpath in November 2016.
This race takes place in its entirety in Washington DC on the flat dirt and crushed stone surfaced C&O Canal Towpath. 3.28 miles of the towpath will be used for this event. Runners will head southeast from the start to the Francis Scott Key Bridge at which point runners will turn around and head northwest on the towpath. After running 3.28 miles northwest, runners will again turn around and head back southeast towards the start/finish line. Upon reaching the start/finish line runners will have completed a quarter marathon – or one course loop. Half marathon runners will run this course loop twice and marathon runners will run this loop four times in order to record finishes in their respective races.
Local time: 1:16 AM
