The Newport News One City Marathon is a fun way to connect the community and inspire a healthy lifestyle. With the One City Marathon beginning in the woods of Newport News Park and ending at Victory Landing Park to showcase the beautiful James River, it provides an opportunity for the entire community to come out and take part in this exciting event. Visitors will enjoy the natural beauty, friendly neighborhoods, cultural amenities, and thriving businesses the city has to offer. “You’ve never been welcomed like this”, is the theme of this event and enthusiastic volunteers will certainly help create an experience that runners and fans will never forget. Whether you are a runner, event volunteer, or fan, thank you for connecting with the City of Newport News as we celebrate all that is good in our city!
