The marathon and 1/2 marathon courses are measured, certified and sanctioned by USA Track and Field, the national governing body of track, field and running events. The marathon is a qualifying event for the Boston Marathon and the New York City "Marathon". While all family members are encouraged to participate, we ask that you keep your "furry" family members home. While we certainly have and love our own pets, pets will NOT be allowed on the course.
During the Friday pre-race expo and Saturday race, we ask that you park in the Central Park parking lots. The neighboring businesses (Ace Hardware, Two Tony's Restaurant, etc) will be open and we don't want to interfere with their business. Thank you. We will post a page with available parking lots for you to park in.
The Marathon has a 6 hour time limit. If you're not able to complete a marathon in 6 hours, DON'T be discouraged. We are offering a special start time 1 hour early (7:00AM) for those that still want to participate in the marathon and meet our cutoff time.
