Yeah, It's "Only" a Marathon, but....

A close running buddy passed on this race announcement for Freedom's Run, a marathon on 12 October.

Why might you be interested?

Advertised as "26 miles through 4 national parks," the race starts in Harper's Ferry, runs upstream along the C+O Canal, through Antietam National Battlefield, and finishes at Shepherd University.

In short, it is FULL of history, both natural and man-made.  The parks it traverses are Harpers Ferry, the C+O Canal, Antietam National Battlefield, and the Potomac Heritage Trail.

Note that some of the JFK 50 Miler route along the C+O Canal is included. 

What's not to like?
