About The Cannonball Marathon

The Cannonball Marathon in Greensboro, North Carolina is a half marathon race that will take place on October 20th, 2023. This scenic and challenging route begins at the Guilford Courthouse National Military Park and follows a winding path through downtown Greensboro before ending near the historic Four Seasons Town Centre Mall. The course includes plenty of rolling hills, giving runners a unique challenge as they navigate their way through the city’s diverse neighborhoods.

In terms of scenery, this race offers some truly breathtaking views as you make your way along the course. From lush green parks to vibrant urban streetscapes with colorful murals adorning buildings, there’s something for everyone to enjoy during this event. And when it comes to weather conditions come October in Greensboro – expect mild temperatures between mid-50s and low 70s with occasional rain showers throughout the day (nothing too intense).

As far as crowd size goes – this race usually attracts around 2,000 participants from all over North Carolina and beyond! It’s always great seeing so many people coming together for such an event; cheering each other on during those last few miles can really help push you towards that finish line! Plus there are always plenty of volunteers available throughout the route who are happy to lend support should anyone need it – which is definitely a plus!

And finally – one thing that sets Cannonball Marathon apart from other races out there is its post-race festival featuring live music acts along with food trucks serving up delicious local cuisine (which certainly helps replenish lost energy!). You also get access to free massages after crossing that finish line – perfect for helping ease any aches & pains accumulated while running 13 miles earlier in the day! All these features combined make this half marathon an experience you won’t forget soon!
