Roanoke, VA - The Blue Ridge Marathon was very profitable for the Roanoke area.

A survey after last month's race showed the marathon and half marathon generated about $476,000 in revenue. Runners came to Roanoke from 38 states and four other countries.

More than 44% of people who took the survey say they stayed in town for at least one night. This year's marathon had 77% more runners than last year, a record.
