Join us for the 4th Annual Moonlight on the Falls Marathon on August 24-25, 2024, at beautiful Blackwater Falls State Park in Tucker County, West Virginia. Beat the summer heat run with us under the stars and enjoy the perfect running temperatures of our cool late summer mountain nights.  
This race will be a nighttime race featuring a Marathon, Half Marathon, Distance Challenge (Ultra Marathon), Relay, and Quarter Marathon. It will be an approximate 6.55-mile (Quarter Marathon) looped course beginning and ending at Pendleton Point in Blackwater Falls State Park. The Distance Challenge will begin at 10 pm and go until 7:45 am with options to run Solo, 2 Person Relay, 4 Person Relay, and 6 Person Relay. In addition to being held in one of West Virginias most visited and beautiful state parks running conditions should be perfect,  average nighttime temperatures during the end of August here in the mountains are 55 degrees. 
As with all of our races, the Moonlight on the Falls Marathon is meant to be a true destination experience. We plan on a festival-like atmosphere for Packet Pick Up and Pre-Race on Saturday with live music, vendors, food, and more! In addition to our festivities, we encourage everyone to check out the endless outdoor recreation opportunities, as well as our funky little mountain towns of Davis and Thomas. 
ALL PARTICIPANTS ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR A REFLECTIVE VEST OR SIMILAR GEAR AND A HEADLAMP. The roads in the park are closed at night to outside traffic and anyone not staying in the park, however, for safety purposes, we will require runners to wear a reflective vest and have a headlamp. Have fun with your lighting; glow sticks and other fun lighting for your outfits are highly encouraged! 
Swag -  All participants will receive a Super Soft Triblend McClumsy long-sleeve T-shirt plus a BONUS FREE McClumsy Pullover Hoodie if you Register Before 10/15 at Midnight, a Locally Made and Sourced finisher medal. 
Course - The Moonlight on the Falls Marathon Course is an all-paved 6.55-mile (Quarter Marathon Course) that starts and finishes at Pendleton Point in Blackwater Falls State Park. This will be a looped course for all distances except the Quarter Marathon.
Relay/Teams - One person will be responsible for setting up their relay teams. Once they register, they will set up a password to give to additional teammates. This year to make the Relay more approachable, each participant in the relay will register and pay individually. 
We have made some changes to our Relay/Teams Categories for 2024 because we want more of you to run with us all night long!
1. New for 2024 All Team Members will have a timing chip on their bib instead of trading off an anklet each lap.
2. The team and relay challenge will be scored by total laps run per team.
3. All/Any Relay Team Members Can Run at the same time and at any point throughout the night.
4. Each lap Run from 10 pm (Race Start) through 4:59 am will count as 1 lap. All Laps started between 5 a.m. - and 5:59 a.m. will be worth 2 laps. Final Laps for the Distance Challenge and Relays must be started before 6:00 a.m.
5. On-course parking for all Distance Challenge Participants and Team/Relay Participants to set up your own aid stations and make refueling easy.
6. We will have a Sunrise Celebration for all Team/Relay Participants and Distance Challenge Participants, which will include breakfast sandwiches, fresh fruit, coffee, juice, and more!
7. Last But Not Least We are also going to be giving away 2 Nights of Lodging and Free Entry to the 2025 Moonlight on the Falls for the Solo Distance Challenge Male and Female Winners, 2 Person Team Winners, 4 Person Team Winners, and 6 Person Team Winners.
