Will you have water and sports drinks at least every two miles?

Yes, water and Gatorade will be at every aid station with people to drinks to you. Aid  stations are every two miles. Miles 11.75 to 19.8 are running out alongside the Lackwaxen River. You then return the same way. There are 4  aid stations there (12, 14, 16, 18). The turnaround is at 19.8, then aid at 20, 22 and 24. 8 aid stations from 12-24  miles. We can also assist getting your special supplies (fluids/nutrition) at an aid station that you specify.

Fluids or soup and snacks at the finish line? Vegetarian?

We will have some vegetarian hot foods at the finish.

Start the race on time? Shuttles to the start?

Race day registration is at the start. The race will start on-time. We have the theater at Woodloch Resort for race day check-in and warmth this year. It is 1/4 mile from the start. Therefore, people can take the shuttle from the finish area.  It will be your responsibility to get to the shuttle on-time.
Late-comers can always start late without waiting for them. Their time won’t be affected if you have timing mat at the start as they will have net time. B-tags are very common now, some still use chips for net  times.

Timing mats both at Start & Finish to clock net times?

Yes, start line and finish line mats, as well as half marathon and 19.8 mile turnaround. 

Two marathons in two days affect the quality of the race?

Last year, we had about 25 Marathon Maniacs. They love to do two marathons in two days and asked if we could do that. Our race director lives five miles from the start and finish and the course runs past his home. It makes sense to have two days of racing without incurring massive extra costs to put on the races.

Schwag? Half-marathoners get the same items?

Everyone who registers will get a shirt, sock and a finisher’s medal.  I’ve ordered what I think will be enough. If we have to order more, we'll get them. Half-marathoners get the same items.

Porta potties along the course?

Yes, porta potties at mile 6, 12 and 18.  

Actively managed turn-around?

Yes, volunteers will be at the turnarounds.

Warming/changing/shower areas at the finish?

No showers. I’m trying to see if the Fire Department will let me rent their facility but haven’t finalized that yet. It is at the finish line.

Age group awards? Overall awards given?

Saturday and Sunday will have separate age group awards.
First overall female and male. 19-under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+
