Strong fields expected for 2013 races
The 51st running of the Equinox Marathon is shaping up to be another competitive affair — and if the forecast is to be believed there may be snow on the ground for the first time since 1996.

Equinox Course Changes for 2013
For the 2013 race there will be some changes to the Marathon/Ultramarathon course on the summit of Ester Dome. At this point we do not know what those changes will be, but there will be some changes. We are working as rapidly as possible to find solutions to the issues that have arisen, but it could be that we will be working on those modifications up until the last few days before the race.
We wish these last-minute changes were NOT necessary, but recent events beyond our control have dictated this, therefore we must do a bit of scrambling on short notice. It's not the way we would prefer to conduct business, but we don't have any choice in the matter.
Rest assured that we will inform all participants at the earliest possible date as to what the changes will be, and we will make sure that we mark the changed areas especially clearly to prevent any confusion. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
Volunteers Needed for Bib Pickup
You don't have to run the marathon to be part of the Equinox Events! Just volunteer for bib pickup and enjoy the excitement - and help make the Equinox a great event.
Early bib pick-up is at the Pump House from 4:30PM-8:00PM, Thursday, September 19 and Friday, September 20 (actual bib pickup begins at 5PM, you would need to be there at 4:30PM)
Race Day Bib Pick-up at SRC, Saturday, September 21st 6:30AM-8:00AM
We'll be making more solicitations in the near future for volunteers to help out with other aspects of the event, so stay tuned!
Hard Copy Registration Forms Availalable Now
Registration forms for hard copy registration are now available at Beaver Sports. The standard registration fees have kicked in, and are in effect through 5:00PM, Tuesday, the 17th.
519 Runners Entered At Close of Earlybird Registration
A total of 519 individuals registered for the Equinox Marathon (330), Ultramarathon (34) and Relay (155) through the earlybird registration period ending at midnight last night.
Below are links to some pacing tables for Equinox Marathon times between 2:45 and 5 hours that I created for a women's running group that I have coached for several years. These tables are based upon the course as it was prior to the 2012 changes (i.e. the 9-mile change, etc.), so they won't be perfect for every mile. We will work on updating these pace tables, but for now, you will have to make your own modifications.
