Get Ready for One City Marathon Weekend

It’s marathon time! Newport News Shipbuilding’s fourth annual One City Marathon will take place on Sunday, March 4.

Its route crosses from Fort Eustis to CNU to Huntington Avenue, spanning every different vista of Newport News, and coming to a total of 26.2 miles which is the certified minimum for a Boston qualifier race.
