The Great Run
EVENTS + COURSE


MARATHON - $85

START TIME: 11:30AM. (There is no early start option. Sorry, no exceptions.)

START/FINISH LOCATION: All runners will start and finish in front of the Church.

All timing ends promptly at 5:30PM.

SCORING/RESULTS: Marathon results will be scored by overall time.

Note: In the event that a registered marathon participant is unable to complete the 26.2-mile distance before the six hour cut-off, they will be listed in the Six Hour Ultra results according to the distance and time they covered at the conclusion of their last recorded lap.

COURSE: The Great Run Marathon is USATF certified (ME11006RF) and a Boston Marathon Qualifier. All participants will first complete a short lap (total 2.2-miles), marathoners will then complete six 4-mile laps.

NOTE: Runners who are not able to complete a marathon in six hours or less should register for the Six Hour Ultra, or as a member of a Six Hour Relay team.

PAST CHAMPIONS

SIX HOUR ULTRA - $85

START TIME: 11:30AM. (There is no early start option. Sorry, no exceptions.)

START/FINISH LOCATION: All runners will start and finish in front of the Church.

All timing ends promptly at 5:30PM.

SCORING/RESULTS: Six Hour Ultra results be scored by distance, then by time. (i.e., the person who runs the most distance in the lowest elapsed total time scores the highest.)

COURSE: All participants will first complete a short lap (total 2.2-miles), Six Hour Ultra participants will then complete as many 4-mile laps as possible before timing ends.

The MOST IMPORTANT thing to keep in mind is that only full laps count to your overall total distance. (In other words, if you get to the timing mats and the timing clock reads 5:55 you probably can't do another full lap in 5-minutes, so your official distance and time would be recorded at that time. You may continue running but only full laps recorded under the six hour cutoff will count.)

NOTE: The 26.2 mile split is USATF certified (ME11006RF) and a Boston Marathon Qualifier.

PAST CHAMPIONS
2015 Kevin Shelton-Smith - 42.2 miles (5:34:22) • Leah Frost - 42.2 miles (5:34:49)


SIX HOUR RELAY - $65 / individual

START TIME: 11:30AM. (There is no early start option. Sorry, no exceptions.)

START/FINISH LOCATION: All runners will start and finish in front of the Church.

All timing ends promptly at 5:30PM.

SCORING/RESULTS: Six Hour Relay results be scored by distance, then by time. (i.e., The team that runs the most distance in the lowest elapsed total time scores the highest.)

COURSE: Your first runner will first complete a short lap (total 2.2-miles), Six Hour Relay participants will then complete as many 4-mile laps as possible before timing ends.

The MOST IMPORTANT thing to keep in mind is that only full laps count to your overall total distance. (In other words, if you get to the timing mats and the timing clock reads 5:55 you probably can't do another full lap in 5-minutes, so your official distance and time would be recorded at that time. You may continue running but only full laps recorded under the six hour cutoff will count.)

TEAM SPECIFIC: Teams may consist of 2 to 6 runners. Teams decide who runs when, and for how long.

Only one runner per team, at a time, will permitted on the course.

Hand-offs must take place in the designated area near the Start / Finish live. (This means that the shortest number of miles a single team member can cover at one time is 4 miles. Team members are welcome to run more than one lap before handing off.)

PAST CHAMPIONS
2015 Moderately Fast Feet - 46.2 miles (5:34:11)
