The Hatfield McCoy Marathon was founded in 2000 and sponsored by the Tug Valley Road Runners Club. Our inaugural race began with just 13 runners. Now we welcome over 1,000 runners! So, whether you want to complete the full 26.2 miles, 13.1, a double half, or even a 5K, the Hatfield McCoy Marathon has a run for you! Oh yeah, if you are a "50 Stater" you can choose either West Virginia or Kentucky as the race state because you'll be running through BOTH! Ranked one of The Weather Channel's Toughest Marathons, Road Runner Magazine's Most Fun Races, RRCA Championship Race, and Red Bull's Must Have Medals.
