The Noland Trail Marathon & Relay will give runners the opportunity to race the ONLY event run on the beautiful Noland Trail in The Mariners’ Museum Park. Runners can take on this challenging run solo, or team up with friends and do it as a relay. Relay teams may have up to 5 members. To achieve the marathon distance runners will run 5 laps on the trail, and a short section of course before and after each trail lap. For a 5-person relay team, each runner will run one lap. Teams made up of less than 5 runners will still need to complete the 5 laps, but can decide on their own who will complete each lap.
Runners will be required to submit a projected pace for the run. Using this pace, runners/teams will start at various times throughout the morning beginning at 7AM. The intent is that all runners/teams will complete the run between 1:30PM-3:00PM.
Starting at 1 p.m., The Mariners’ ARRRtober Festival will kick off. The family-friendly festival will include live music, pirate costume contest and storytelling, craft beer tastings, food trucks, and much more! Race registrants will receive access to the festival as part of their after party and includes unlimited craft beer tastings and a souvenir tasting glass.
Registration is limited to the first 1000 registrants.
Runners will have 8 hours to complete the marathon. The finish line will officially close at 3:15PM. Because of this, it is important that participants submit accurate pace projections when registering to ensure they are seeded to start at an appropriate time and have plenty of time to then finish the run.
$80 solo/$70 team member before Feb 1. Price increases will take place throughout the registration period, or registration will close when no spots or left.
There will be aid stations available along the trail. The quantity and locations are yet to be determined.
