For TN – I think you would love the 7 Bridges Full Marathon or Half Marathon! Great way to see the city. :)

Avenue of the Giants Marathon or Humboldt Redwoods Marathon in California.

For Alaska, check out the Equinox Marathon (they give you a patch instead of a medal).

Missouri – Check out the Waddell and Reed Kansas City Marathon: http://www.waddellandreedkansascitymarathon.org/ . Beautiful course and I’ve done the half twice now. If you’d rather head to St Louis, they have a Rock n Roll event there as well. Both of these races are in October.

I love the idea of the bucket list! I have one running but listed just by race, not by state, may have to switch it up :)
