Congratulations to the Prudential Premier, REALTORS agents, family and friends who ran in the Blue Ridge Marathon (and half-marathon) on April 20, 2013! Prudential Premier co-owner Beth Wilson completed the half-marathon with friend Peggy Stancil; they enjoyed the day and saw long hours of training pay off.
Prudential Premier agent Fred Wall and his wife Vanessa also competed, successfully finishing the half-marathon in 2:27. Fred and Vanessa are already working on plans to compete again in 2014.
The Blue Ridge Marathon is widely considered to be America’s toughest road marathon, which was evident from the course. It included 3,620 feet of total elevation gain and 7,234 feet of total elevation change; a true challenge for just about anyone!
The date for next year’s Blue Ridge Marathon has been set: April 26, 2014.
