The time limit for this event is 6 hours and 30 minutes (Marathon) and 3 hours and 15 minutes (Half-Marathon) which is a 15-minute per mile pace. The cutoff time is determined by our event permit, which permits us to use the roads, police support and other city resources for a specified period of time.
After the permitted period ends, roads will reopen and we will no longer be able to provide participants with critical course support, including road closures, police and medical coverage, hydrations stations and course markings.
When the course closes at the cutoff time, any remaining participants must move off of the roads and onto a sidewalk.
Anyone who decides to utilize the course route before or after the permitted time will not be considered an active participant and must follow pedestrian laws. Participants who do not meet the cutoff time will not receive an official time
The full & half marathon courses are both USATF certified.
