a terrific marathon for first-timers (about: 2001)|
(Scott Jordan) from Knoxville, TN (3/30/01)
Although I live 2 hours away, I frequently visit the VA Creeper trail for hiking, biking, and of course, running. So it was a perfect choice for my first marathon. The trail is in good shape and easy on the feet, the scenery is phenomenal and inspiring, and the volunteers exceptional. You'll also enjoy the quaint town of Abingdon with its historic theatre, the Martha Washington Inn, antiques, and charming restaurants.
