Congratulations to Isaac Reiss for finishing 1st in the 2016 All American Marathon!The All-American Marthon and Mike-to-Mike Half Marathon started in downtown Fayetteville, NC at Festival Park on April 3, 2016. Festival Park is a four acre concert/entertainment complex located in the heart of Fayetteville.
Racers ran up Ray Avenue to Hay Street where they ran through the heart of historic downtown Fayetteville, past the Market House. The route then took runners up past Veterans Parks, and the Airborne and Special Operations Museum, which is the home to the historic Iron Mike Statue. Runners continued running up Morganton through the Historic Haymount District of Fayetteville, traveling rolling hills until reaching the All-American Freeway. For Half-Marathoners, the race course ran approximately two miles on Fort Bragg via the All-American.
Half-Marathoners exited the All-American onto Normandy and ran to finish the race at the Main Post Parade Field with scenic views of Fort Bragg’s replica Iron Mike Statue. After running on the All-American freeway for about four miles, our full marathon racers entered the installation on Gruber road. The race course then led runners past the home of the 82nd Airborne Division and past Pope Airfield. Marathoners finished their course with scenic views of FORSCOM headquarters and past Fort Bragg’s Iron Mike statue, finishing at the Main Post Parade Field.
