The SBY Marathon/Half Marathon starts in the City Park, and makes its way along the beautiful trails of the Urban Greenway before heading into the pastoral countryside just outside city limits. The route will take each runner through Salisbury University’s campus, a spot so beautiful it has been designated as a state arboretum, and along the scenic Riverside Drive. Water views eventually give way to the sights of the city, as runners make their way to the finish line in Salisbury’s resurgent and beautiful downtown. The post-race party will feature the best local craft brews and music.
