Have you ever considered traveling somewhere new in the United States to run a full marathon? If so, consider applying to run one of these classic marathons / routes. Admittedly, some of these marathons are next to impossible to enter due to how many runners are competing for an often very limited number of "bibs". To earn a bib, many of these marathons require you to run another qualifying marathon under a specific time limit based upon whether you are male or female. If you don't have a qualifying time, some marathons will allow you to run for charity (although the amount of money you need to raise can be prohibitively steep).

If you know of any other outstanding marathons in the USA, please email me at gparsons66@hotmail.com so that I can add them to this list.
