Race routes include scenic roadways inside Callaway's 13,000 acres, making this an enjoyable experience for participants and spectators alike. The Marathon is a "Boston Marathon" qualifier. Many runners pick this event to qualify for "Boston" which has similar elevation changes. Over the past eight years, the Marathon at Callaway Gardens also has become very popular with the "50 Staters" (people whose goal is to run a marathon in all 50 states). Callaway Gardens has a reputation of beauty and hospitality that the "50 Staters" desire. The Marathon is two loops through Callaway Gardens. The Half Marathon is one loop.
