Details from event's Active.com listing:
The inaugural Virginia Marathon is coming to Virginia’s horse and wine country this November. Developed by Old Dominion Racing, this event will include both live/in-person racing and virtual racing. All in-person racers will have access to built-in virtual training as well. The live race is Saturday November, 6, 2021, kicking off in historic Middleburg. Land at Dulles International Airport in Loudoun County and within 30 minutes, arrive at this postcard-worthy town dating back to 1787. Travel along paved roads (some gravel) in Loudoun and Fauquier counties, enjoying scenic vistas, horse farms, rolling countryside and plenty of shade. Everyone starts and ends at The Hill School, which is minutes from Middleburg’s downtown streets filled with boutiques and locally-owned restaurants. Athletes seeking a greater challenge can opt for the full or Merikós to sprint up Bull Run Mountain and back again - the only race in Virginia to offer this option!
