Event Details

The Soldier Marathon and Half Marathon are long distance endurance races held in Columbus, Georgia. The National Infantry Museum is honored to be the presenting sponsor as well as the start and finish line for the races on Saturday, November 18, 2017. 
The race course runs through the three communities of Ft. Benning, Georgia, Columbus, Georgia, and Phenix City, Alabama. 
The marathon and half marathon courses are certified for accurate distances. There is also a Relay Marathon, a 5K race and a Kids Marathon with a one-mile fun run after kids accumulate their miles prior to race day. 
The mission of the races is to salute the United States soldier, to showcase our community and to give runners a great experience. 
Fallen Hero Program Runners are offered the opportunity to run in honor of a fallen soldier. The fallen hero may be a family member or friend from any branch of armed service and from any campaign or period of service, or the runner may select a fallen hero from the names of soldiers offered at the registration table.
The beneficiaries of the Soldier Marathon and Half Marathon are the National Infantry Museum, which memorializes the history of the United States soldier, and the House of Heroes, which helps soldiers repair and rebuild their homes.
