Weather

The race is scheduled for early winter in southern New England. The weather is unpredictable, and there is a chance that snow or ice or other dangerous weather conditions may cause the race to be postponed or cancelled. In the event of postponement or cancellation, there will be no refunds.

Time Limits / Early Starts

The time limit for both the marathon and half marathon is six (6) hours. After 2:30 PM, course support will be removed, and the official clock will be stopped.
If you expect to take more than six hours to complete the course, you may start an hour early at 7:30 AM. Keep in mind that early starters are not eligible for awards, and they may be manually timed or self-timed, and aid stations may not be available prior to the official 8:30 AM start.

Aid Stations

Because of the out and back / looped nature of the marathon and half marathon courses, you will encounter some (for half marathon) or all (for marathon) aid stations multiple times. The distance between aid stations will be 2 to 3 miles. Aid stations will be stocked with water and Gatorade... and possibly other treats... You will also pass by the parking lot near the start / finish line, so you may get your own food and drink from your car.
