Salisbury, Maryland is home to a large community of passionate runners of all stripes -- road, trail, track, 5k, distance, cross-country... If you run, SBY is your kind of town.
The SBY Marathon AND Half Marathon start in the City Park, and makes their way along the beautiful trails of the Urban Greenway, before heading into the pastoral countryside just outside City limits. The route will take you through the campus of Salisbury University -- a spot so beautiful it has been designated a state arboretum -- and along scenic Riverside Drive. Water views eventually give way to the sights of the City, as you make your way to the finish line in Salisbury's resurgent and beautiful Downtown. The post-race party will feature the best local craft brews and music!
Both the Full distance and Half follow the same course, so you can run with your friends and family for 10+ miles. After passing through Salisbury University, the runners will be able to split and continue with their event. All runners will finish at the same, communal finish line.
