    Time Limit
    There is a 7.5-hour time limit for all distances. 3.5-hour cut-off for the first half of the Marathon.
    Course
    The course will be marked with flagging approximately every 200 yards and color coded as follows:
    • 5 mile – yellow
    • Half Marathon – pink
    • Marathon – Pink (Half Marathon course twice)
    The most important course marking is the polka-dot flagging. It indicates a turn at an intersection. There will be at least two polka-dot flagging before a turn in the course. The polka-dot flagging will be placed before and on the same side as the required turn. As you approach an intersection, look for any polka-dot flagging before the turn. Waiting until you're in the intersection to determine the correct direction may be confusing and you may go the wrong way. After you complete the turn, there will be yellow and/or pink flagging indicating the correct route.
    If you don't see your respective flagging for 3-4 minutes, you are off course. If you get off course, you should retrace your path until you find where you left the course and then continue along the marked course.
    Please be courteous on the trail. If you're passing another runner or hiker, announce "on your left" as you approach.
    Headphones are allowed along the course. Please do not wear headphones while crossing paved roads, when getting aid at aid stations, or while crossing the finish line.
    Your bib number indicates the distance that you're running. If you want to change your distance, please send us an e-mail or let us know by check-in, at the latest.
    No dogs allowed on the course. Please don't leave pets in your vehicle.

    Aid Stations

If you would like to be sure that you have any other specific item at the event, you should carry it with you.
