The 26.2 mile run is open to male and female participants 15 years of age and older. All participants under the age of 18 must have parent/guardian’s signature. No one under the age of 15 will be allowed to participate in the Full Marathon. Runners may participate as part of a 4-person relay team for additional fees.

Age Awards will be given three deep by gender and age. Award winners may pick up awards after they finish, after they have been posted. Please do not leave before checking whether you placed!
