Register before Price Increases in October

With just a little over five months until the big marathon day, the excitement and anticipation is growing. You can be part of the fun and festivities at a savings if you register before the prices increase on October 16.marathon logo_sc 

The 3rd annual One City Marathon, taking place on Sunday, March 12, 2017, has events for all ages and all abilities. As a participant, you can take a 26.2 running tour of Newport News in a Boston Marathon qualifying race! You can even form a team of two to four runners, run the same course and split the distance. For those who want to join in but want a shorter course, then the Maritime 8k is just for you. For the kids of all ages, the Nautical mile is a perfect starter race.

For more information on the Marathon, the different races or how to register, visit the One City Marathon website.
