The marathon course limit is 6 hours and has two mandatory checkpoints. Should you not meet the two checkpoints, you will be escorted to a sag vehicle. Those who continue on must sign a release waiver and turn in their BIB number to continue as a citizen.
This is a competitive race with an expected finish time of 6 hours or less. Because we hire police and security from 5 jurisdictions, it is important that we comply with the time limits set.
There are two checkpoints along the course; mile 10 and mile 15. You must maintain a 13:43 pace to complete within the 6 hour time limit. You’ll need to be at mile 10 by 9:30am, and mile 15 by 10:45am.
Runners planning on finishing the race must be through mile 20 by 12pm. Please be considerate of our volunteers who begin their day as early as 3am. We do our best to score every runner and do not sweep the course; however we do modify the finish area at the 6 hour point. The chip time mats are also removed at the 6+ hour pace at which point those who finish are hand timed to be sure they are in our finish results.
