Valley 7 Lakes Marathon is excited to announce that we have signed Beast Pacing to assist in your pursuit of personal bests and Boston Qualifiers! We will have the following pace groups:
For the Half Marathon- 1:45, 2:00, 2:15, 2:30, 2:45, and 3:00.
For the Full Marathon- 3:35, 3:50, 4:05, 4:20, 4:35, and 5:00.  Something for everyone.  Not for the last time, Giddyup!

America’s Marathon is catering to every runner looking to “Run To Your  Potential.”  Our scope isn’t limited.  I’ve been entertaining calls and questions from a few international athletes.  We’ll see how that turns out.  But the question arises, why the national and international interest in Valley 7 Lakes?  The better question should be “Why not?”

From what I hear from our registrants, they are entered with the intention of running their personal bests or Boston Qualifiers.  A few others will be coming in to put up a time that will get them considered for our USA National Championships or other high tier events.  A couple more going after state or national records.

Many are also intrigued by the opportunity to run a true road race.  Others looking towards a World Class Race With Small Town Charm.  To tour the natural beauty of our deep lake communities.  West Shores, Mallard Landing, Curtis Acres, Lake Aero, Lake Clagus, Lake Taormina, Anderson Lake.  Original homesteads, million, and multi-million dollar homes dotting the pancake flat, lightning fast, asphalt country roads.

We invite you to join us on April 25th.  Two months and seventeen days until the cannon fires in front of the Veteran’s War Memorial in downtown Valley.
