Fort4Fitness will add a full marathon to its fall running event and a 100 kilometer race to its spring cycling event, the organization announced today. The 26.2-mile marathon will be added to the half-marathon, 10K and 4-mile run/walk that have been the staples of the event. The Fall Festival will Sept. 30 and Oct. 1. All races finish at Parkview Field.

The Spring Cycle on May 21 will include distances of 10, 16, 34 and 44 miles, as well as the new 100K distance. The “metric century” will cross into Ohio and end at the Cinema Center.

“It has always been a goal of Fort4Fitness to answer the call of our participants' needs,” director of marketing and community relations Carrie Reeb said in a release. “Two years ago, we began offering multi-race options to accommodate those runners and walkers wanting to compete longer distances. By adding a 26.2-mile course, Fort4Fitness participans are given the option to set new goals of completing this impressive accomplishment.”

Fort4Fitness will also set a maximum number of competitors in each race. The marathon will be limited to 1,000 runners, the half-marathon to 3,000 runners, the 10K to 2,500 runners and the 4-mile to 3,500 runners/walkers.

Registration for both the Spring Cycle and Fall Festival opens Jan.1.
