We’ve made it to the semifinals of our March Madness Greatest Marathon Tournament where YOU get to decide which U.S. marathon (that isn’t a NYC, Boston, Chicago or the other gigantic marathons) is tops! We started with 64 awesome marathons with between 800 and 8,000 participants and we’re now down to our Final 4!

That’s right! We’re down to the four best mid-sized marathons in the land. From the East, Pittsburgh takes on Columbus from the Central.  And from the South, the 15th seeded Kiawah Island looks to knock out the relative Goliath Big Sur from the West.  (Click here for the updated bracket).

Which two marathons will advance to the finals? YOU decide! Voting closes at 9:00 a.m. tomorrow, April 7.

1. Big Sur International Marathon (5) vs Kiawah Island Golf Resort Marathon (15):

Salty Running boss and mother of 3 little ones with PRs of 3:10:15 (26.2), 1:25:59 (13.1) and 18:15 (5k). I love to write about running culture, mental training, and fitting in a serious running habit with the rest of a busy life.

  1. I live near Pittsburgh but have never run the half. I’m running Columbus for my FIRST full so I naturally have to pick Columbus!!!!

  2. Cbus has been doing strong the past few rounds. Hopefully they can pull it out and keep going! By far my favorite race ever!
