Reston Runners host the Runners Marathon of Reston every year. The event includes a marathon, half marathon, 4-leg marathon relay and a 2-leg half marathon relay.
The Runners Marathon of Reston benefits the Reston Community Fund providing scholarships to are High Schools and Students.
Relay Event Perfect for Walkers!
Our 2-person half marathon relay option is perfect for walkers/walk-runners. Each leg is approximately 10K; participants in this event need only maintain a 25 minute/mile to complete the event on time.
The racecourse has some hills and turns, and provides runners a mixture of fast downhill road running, beautiful paved trails, and some lightly challenging uphill sections. The course is a 13.1 mile loop; marathoners run the course twice.
We provide a free pre-race pasta dinner for runners and volunteers during packet pickup, and an extensive post-race feast for all participants, volunteers, and their families.
The race starts and finishes at South Lakes High School with a comfortable indoor space (Flush toilets! Coffee! Showers!). The course is amply supported with eager volunteers, porta-potties, race-course food, and Gatorade.
