Here is a excellent list of marathon events across the country for the rest of the year.  Typically races are held in the spring, fall and winter.  Cooler areas of the country do host events in the summer.  Some people like to pick one marathon a year to do.  Others like to pick them strategically throughout the year in order to keep their marathon training on track.

Marathons are a great motivator for getting your body in peak condition.  They are fun events to be a part of.  Most marathoners experience a sense of identity, a feeling of being a member of a special club.  Scan the following list to choose the best marathon for you.  By the end of the year, you can be a member of the club, too!
