The New York City Marathon has grown from a Central Park race with 55 finishers to the world's biggest and most popular marathon, with nearly 50,000 finishers in 2015. Read about the race's 45-year history; you'll also find stories from many angles and great photo galleries from the 2015 race.
Whether you’re a seasoned marathoner, casual runner or training for your first 5K, we have a race for you. On Saturday, October 14 we kick off our weekend of races with the American Home Fitness 5K and Meijer Kids Fun Run. Then on Sunday, October 15 the Full Marathon, International Half-Marathon and Marathon Relay kick off our international events. The U.S.-Only Half-Marathon starts shortly after and rounds out our events.
Each September/October, employees, family and friends from the airline community come together for the World Airline Road Race (WARR).
WARR is a professionally run, volunteer driven, four-day event put on by airline members offering to host in their home city. Now entering its 36th year in 2017, with over 1,500 participants from 50+ airlines, the World Airline Road Race is one of the largest annual airline athletic events in the world.
The host airline, in conjunction with the International WARR Committee, organizes activities for airline employees in the spirit of fun and friendly competition. Although the medals and trophies are great, the true reward of the World Airline Road Race is the team-building, company pride and spirit displayed by participants and volunteers. In addition to the morale boost within companies, it is a great way to travel the world with colleagues, friends and family.
Meet-and-greet parties and a airline T-shirt-swap party that recognizes best team shirts, lead up to the 5K and 10K walk-and-run on day four. The awards dinner and dance that ends the event is a great chance to meet airline professionals from all over the world. Participation awards are also presented to all airlines that compete in one of four divisions (determined by the number of employees within each airline).

From its humble beginnings in 1970 when a group of friends from the University of Washington decided to hold their own marathon, the Seattle Marathon Family of Events has grown into the largest combination marathon/half marathon in the Northwest and one of the top ten largest in the U.S. That first marathon 45 years ago sported 38 runners. This year, 10,000 participants are expected for the marathon and half marathon walking and running events.
First run in 1970, the Deseret News Marathon is the oldest road race in Utah and the 4th oldest marathon west of the continental divide. The marathon follows the path the Utah pioneers traveled when they first entered the valley. This event is truly a part of Utah’s heritage!
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Peachtree Road Race is a 10-kilometer run held annually in Atlanta, Georgia, on July 4, Independence Day. The AJC Peachtree Road Race is the world's largest 10-kilometer race (an estimated 60,000 participants in 2011), a title it has held since the late 1970s. The race has become a city-wide tradition in which over 70,000 amateur and professional runners try to register for one of the limited 60,000 spots. The event also includes a wheelchair race (known as the Shepherd Center wheelchair division), which precedes the footrace.
Since our initial race in 1977, Grandma’s Marathon has grown bigger than just a 26.2 mile race along the scenic North Shore of Minnesota.
It’s a moment where runners of all calibers come together to celebrate the vigor of the human spirit. Where the word “impossible” ceases to exist; a day where 9,000 people are your best running buddy.
So, tie up your laces and join us for the 41st year of memories, miles and human might.
Registration for the 2017 Grandma’s Marathon, Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon and William A. Irvin 5K opens at 10 a.m. October 1, 2016.
It’s the largest weekend party in town, and you can be part of it! Whether you’re a runner or walker, whether you want to volunteer or cheer, whether you want to participate for charity, or just for your own satisfaction, we’d love for you to join us. Sign up today and be part of the Pig Party!
