Here is a selection of Marathons organized in July 2015 that were previously featured in our monthly newsletter.
New Zealand – Wellington
You will start on the Fran Wilde Walkway in front of the Westpac Stadium in Wellington. You will then follow the coast to reach Scorching Bay, before turning around and run back to the Stadium, following the same course.
Austria – St. Anton am Arlberg
Most of the race is run on hiking trails and forest roads. You will start 881m above the sea in Silbertal. The first half of the race will climb up to 1,945m where you’ll cross the border between Vorarlberg and Tyrol before progressively running down to St. Anton am Arlberg (1296.4 m) where the finish line is located.
USA – Montana – Missoula
The point-to-point race has a scenic route that wanders in the countryside before finishing in historic downtown Missoula. The race is flat and fast, the only significant hill is located at the halfway point.
USA – Colorado – Aspen
You will run from Wagner Park in Aspen to Lions Park in Basalt along the Rio Grande trail, descending about 1,500 ft. This makes the race a seriously fast Boston Qualifier!
United Kingdom – Gwynedd – Llanberis
The marathon will have you climb 1,685m over 26 miles and follow magnificent trails with spectacular panoramic views over the Snowdonia National Park. On your way, you’ll even climb Wales’ highest peak, Snowdon.
