About This Activity

Looking for something different?

How about running through an historic, 160 year old cemetery at night on a fully supported, closed road course that you can run solo or with your friends and family and with the goal of finishing your adventure closest to midnight.

The evening of Sep 17th 2016 will be the running of the Moonlight Marathon at Oak Ridge Cemetery.  On that night, you will have the option to run a full marathon, half marathon, marathon relay, 6.55 mile or 5k course under a crescent moon and in the shadow of Lincoln’s Tomb.

Event details and schedule

The 5K is a fun run and the 6.55 mile and 1/2 marathon are races for the fastest times.  The marathon, ultra-marathon and Relay marathon are prediction races with winners being those that finish closest to midnight without going past 12:00 a.m. 

All runners on the course after dark are required to bring and wear a headlamp or other lighting device.
