Join us for the 3rd Annual Moonlight on the Falls Marathon on August 26-27, 2023 at beautiful Blackwater Falls State Park in Tucker County, West Virginia. Beat the summer heat and run with us under the stars and enjoy the perfect running temperatures with our cool late summer mountain nights.

This race will be a nighttime race featuring a Half Marathon, Marathon, Distance Challenge, and Relay and will be an approximate 6.55-mile (Quarter Marathon) looped course beginning and ending at Pendleton Point in Blackwater Falls State Park. The Distance Challenge will begin at 10 pm and will go until 7 am with options to run Solo, 2 Person Relay, 4 Person Relay, and 6 Person Relay. The Half Marathon and Marathon will have options to start throughout the night depending on your desired finish time. In addition to being held in one of West Virginia's most visited and beautiful state parks running conditions should be perfect. Average nighttime temperatures during the end of August here in the mountains are 55 degrees.

As with all of our races the Moonlight on the Falls Marathon is meant to be a true destination experience. We are planning on a festival-like atmosphere for Packet Pick Up and Pre-Race on Saturday with live music, vendors, food, and more! In addition to our festivities, we encourage everyone to check out the endless outdoor recreation opportunities, as well as our funky little mountain towns of Davis, and Thomas.

ALL PARTICIPANTS ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR A REFLECTIVE VEST OR SIMILAR GEAR AND A HEADLAMP. The roads in the park are closed at night to outside traffic and anyone not staying in the park, however, for safety purposes, we will require runners to wear a reflective vest and have a headlamp. Have fun with your lighting; glow sticks and other fun lighting for your outfits is highly encouraged!

Swag - All participants will receive an awesome unisex McClumsy lightweight hoodie and an event and distance-specific Locally Made & Sourced finisher medal.

Course - The Moonlight on the Falls Marathon Course is an all-paved 6.55 Miles (Quarter Marathon Course) that starts and finishes at Pendleton Point in Blackwater Falls State Park. This will be a looped course for all distances except the Quarter Marathon.

Relays - One person will be responsible for paying for and setting up their relay teams. Once they register, they will set up a password to give to additional teammates.
