RACE DAY CHECK-IN

Race day athlete check-in is in the Woodloch Theater.

731 Welcome Lake Drive, Hawley PA. 

These races are certified Boston Marathon qualifying course. Certificate PA12012W.

  • There will be signs directing athletes and  families to the parking area.
  • There are not any climbs on either course. Gaining 50 feet per mile is less than a 1 percent grade.
  • Mile marker signs at every mile (as well as paint on the road surface). Signs that can’t be missed at the turnarounds (marathon, half-marathon, 10k and 5k).
  • Marathon and half marathon turns. Please don’t miss them! Only 5 people have missed turns in the 4 previous years of the race. Each turn will have signage, paint on the ground, cones and more signs  letting you know it’s time to turn. 
  • Race Director Rule of Thumb, “When you think you have enough signs on the course so that nobody can possibly get lost, double the signage!” There  will be double the signage on the course.
  • Finish line: 106 Scenic Dr., Lackawaxen, PA.  Parking is across the street at the Fire House.
