Air Force Marathon tops list of ‘best’ fall marathons


The Air Force Marathon tops the list of the “15 Best Fall Marathons in the U.S.” in 2018, according to the fitness website Daily Burn.

Daily Burn, which has named the marathon to the list in prior years, cited a mostly flat course through Wright-Patterson, “awesome jet flyovers” to launch the race and “enthusiastic volunteers” lining the course as runners “race past historical aviation sites like the Wright Brothers Memorial Monument.”
