Rocket City Marathon & Half Marathon, 5K
The Huntsville Track Club and the Huntsville Sports Commission invite you to help save the world from Dr. Ossired’s nefarious intentions this year at the Rocket City Marathon. In a race unlike any you participated in before, you’ll be an integral part of a story that unfolds on the streets of Huntsville. Follow us on social media and our website as we reveal more of the comic that pays homage to the 1950’s style science fiction that inspired many of the actual rocket scientists that lived and worked in Huntsville and helped us reach the moon and beyond.
The Rocket City Marathon has been a fixture in North Alabama for over 40 years. Enjoy a flat, Boston qualifying course that runs through parts of historic Huntsville, through the Space & Rocket Center, through the Botanical Gardens, and finishes inside the Von Braun Center.
