When does the marathon typically sell out?
The marathon is limited to the first 550 runners who sign up. Normally we sell out in early November, but it has been sold out in mid October.
When does the marathon relay typically sell out?
Only 40 teams are accepted so the marathon relay typically sells out in early August.
I signed up on Active.com but did not get a confirmation email. Am I in?
Our list of entrants is updated about once a week so you can check for your name there. Also check your spam folder for the email confirmation.
I'm filling out the registration form for the marathon relay. Do we need to submit two forms for each runner or do they both go on the same form?
You would actually need to complete two forms, one per participant and submit them together.
Marathon & Relay
Can I run both the relay and the marathon?
No, in order to allow as many people to participate as possible we only allow entry into one event.
Is there a time limit?
Yes, there is a 6-hour time limit. The course closes promptly at 2:30. Any participants remaining on the course after this time will be swept.
Do you normally attract many first time or novice marathon runners?
We do in fact have participants that choose to make this event their first marathon.
Is bag check available?
Yes we have an indoor gym where bag check is available.
Are there shower facilities available at the finish?
No, showers are not available.
Are ipods or any electronic devices allowed during the race?
It is a Road Runners Club of America sanctioned event and therefore iPods and ear buds are not permitted.
I still have questions. Who can I ask?
