About The Air Force Marathon

The Air Force Marathon in Dayton, Ohio on 15 September 2023 is a great way to challenge yourself and explore the city. The route starts at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base before heading through the town of Huber Heights and then looping back towards the base. This course offers plenty of scenery along the way with a mix of urban and rural terrain that provides an interesting contrast.

This half marathon typically takes place during pleasant fall weather so expect temperatures in the mid-60s on race day with some cloud cover from time to time. The sun can be intense so runners should dress appropriately for maximum comfort. And crowds will be out cheering you every step of the way – this race is known for its enthusiastic supporters!

What makes this particular half marathon unique is that it celebrates our nation’s armed forces. There are several points along the route where participants can pay tribute to those who have served their country as well as recognize current active duty military personnel who participate in this event each year. Runners will also pass by historical sites such as WPAFB Museum, Hangar 4, and other landmarks throughout their journey around Dayton, making it a truly memorable experience overall!

Given its location, there are plenty of places to stay nearby if you plan on making a weekend out of your visit (and why wouldn’t you?). From cozy bed & breakfasts to larger hotels complete with amenities like indoor pools or fitness centers – there’s something for everyone! Plus local eateries serve up delicious pre-race meals so you can fuel up before taking off down Main Street USA!
