Tallahassee Marathon/Half Marathon

 

Tallahassee Marathon/Half Marathon. Date: February 7, 2016Location: Monroe Street, Town Center. 2016 will be a year of big changes for the marathon and the half. Jon Manry and Eric Godin have taken over as race directors.  The race course will be brand new and the goal is to show off all of Tallahassee. Last year was the 40th running of the Tallahassee Marathon and it was a huge success. The half actually filled up (800) and registration closed. The full marathon had a record 358 finishers including Nick Mazza who has finished more Tallahassee Marathons than any other human being. Jay Silvanima took over the reins of this classy event in 2007. His wife Nancy Stedman became co-director a few years later and they have been a tremendous team building the marathon and half to its highest levels ever.  They leave big shoes for Jon and Eric to fill. There is no better marathon experience than a “hometown” marathon, and this one proves the point. This race was first run in 1975 in the forest at Natural Bridge Road, and might just be the first “official” GWTC race. Two runners participated that first year - director Andy Burns and winner John Hargreaves. There is more information at http://www.tallahasseemarathon.com/.
