FROM THE RACE ORGANIZERS
Don’t be intimidated by the Roanoke Canal Trail. Although it is off road, the vast majority of the trail runs parallel to the Roanoke Canal and the Roanoke River. This makes for a trail that is primarily flat. There are some brief dips and “rollers” but no major climbs. The footing is great, even if you are brand new to trails. Don’t be surprised if you set a half marathon PR on the course!
