Upwards of 150,000 spectators plus four radio broadcasts along the course rally runners as they wind their way through Buckhead into midtown Atlanta in this 49-year-old Independence Day race, the largest 10K in the world. A recurring cheerleader is Dean Sam Candler, who sprinkles runners with “holy water” outside the Cathedral of St. Philip around mile two. The support is especially needed about half a mile later as runners tackle Cardiac Hill, which rises more than 120 feet in approximately 0.75 miles.

An annual event that happens every 4th of July in Seward, Alaska. It is known for quite a strenuous and challenging course leading to the top of Mount Marathon, which is 2,974 feet (906 m) high. The start line is located in downtown, at 4th and Adams. The race finishes almost at the same spot, just a block south. The total distance of the race is only about 3.1 mi (5 km), but it is not going to be easy as the trail is muddy and rocky. Runners have suffered numerous injuries here before. All participants are required to be in good shape and have a mountain running experience. Helmets, gloves, and other protective gear are recommended. Leading racers usually get to Mount Marathon top in about 40 minutes, and reach the finish from there in 15 minutes. The race course includes steep inclines, slippery loose rock, and shale. Racers must be ready to get themselves down the mountain even if injured since assistance is not guaranteed. The total elevation gain of the course is 3,022 feet (921 m). Registration for the July 4th, 2020 opens March 1, 2020 Entry

This fast, point-to-point seaside 10K—founded by Joan Benoit Samuelson, winner of the first-ever women’s marathon in the 1984 Olympics—kicks off near Crescent Beach State Park in Cape Elizabeth. The winding route takes runners along tree-lined roads with panoramic Atlantic Ocean vistas. A fire truck aerial ladder arch displaying the American flag marks the midway point, and a hairpin turn around mile six leads runners up a steep path before wrapping around into a homestretch that includes views of Casco Bay and the Portland Head Light, the nation’s first commissioned lighthouse and also the most photographed lighthouse in America. Samuelson herself greets runners at the finish line. Home

This 7-mile course is nearly completely seaside, beginning in Woods Hole with the first three miles on narrow, hilly, winding and tree-shaded roads. The most iconic part, according to the race’s general manager Jennifer Edwards, comes right after mile one when runners pass Nobska Light, a picturesque, historic lighthouse perched on the southwestern tip of Cape Cod and overlooking Martha’s Vineyard and the Elizabeth Islands. The final four miles open up on the flat right alongside Martha’s Vineyard Sound, where a small steep hill indicates the final half-mile of the race. As runners crest the hill, they’ll see a giant American flag flying overhead, and they can see themselves cross the finish on the JumboTron. From there, the race is all downhill to the finish along Falmouth Heights Beach. General Registration opens May 8, 2020 at 9:00 AM – May 17, 2020 at 11:59 PM Registration

Registration will open in early March 2020. https://www.tcmevents.org/events/medtronic-twin-cities-marathon-weekend-2020
