​The entire event is sanctioned with USA Track and Field, the national governing body of track, field and running events. The marathon and 1/2 marathon courses are measured and certified with USA Track and Field. The marathon course is a qualifying event for the Boston and New York City Marathons. The 1/2 marathon is also a qualifying course for the New York City Marathon, at a slightly faster pace, naturally. The marathon is also a qualifying event for the Abbott World Marathon Majors. While all family members are encouraged to participate, we need you to keep your "furry" family members home. While we certainly have and love our own pets, pets will NOT be allowed at the venue or on the course. Running strollers WILL be allowed. Since most of the run is on bike paths, we need you to start at the back and also run single file, please.

During the Saturday race, we ask that you enter the high school parking lot using the far West entrance. Please see the "Map to Venue/Parking" page with directions

Walkers ARE welcome for ALL the distances. The marathon has a 6 hour time limit. If you're not able to finish the marathon in 6 hours, DON'T BE DISCOURAGED. We offer a special start time of 1 hour early (7:00AM) for those unable to finish the marathon in 6 hours. This early start is NOT available to anyone else.
