The Inaugural Morgantown Marathon is scheduled for Sunday, September 19th, beginning at 7:00 AM. The marathon will begin at the Coliseum and the route will bring the runners through Star City on University Avenue, Broadway Avenue, and Fairfield Street.

We'd also like to see city residents out in support of the runners, cheering along the route. There will be international press coverage of this event including newspapers, television, and radio. It's an honor to be involved in this type of event and showing our support is a gold star for Star City!
