“We are excited to be hosting the Moonlight on the Falls Marathon for the second consecutive season,” said Robby McClung, owner and founder of the Canaan Valley Running Company. “We look forward to catching up with the friends we made last year and make new friends as we expand on our success.

Runners will have the option to run a 26.2-mile marathon, a 13.1-mile half marathon, a 6.55-mile quarter marathon, a relay and an ultramarathon distance challenge. The course is a USA Track and Field certified course, and runners who compete in the full marathon will have an opportunity to qualify for the world renowned Boston Marathon
