The 2nd year of the Mathews Marathon, hosted by the Mathews Outdoor Club, features more options to encourage runners of all fitness levels to participate in this competitive event. The 2022 event not only features the full marathon, but also a half marathon, team relay option, and a virtual option for runners who can’t make the race day, or can’t travel to Mathews.
Run along the peaceful, rural backroads of beautiful Mathews County, Virginia. This race features a fast, flat course that winds through dirt, gravel and paved roads past the serenity of one of Virginia’s last great countrysides featuring marshland and glimpses of the Chesapeake Bay. Registration will close on October 6.
