Race Updates

Good Morning Participants!

Here are a few things to expect at the race:

  • The SRC (Student Recreation Center) will be open in the morning at 7:00AM.
  • The Patty Center will be available for showers after the race.
  • There will be aid stations that will have Lemon Lime Gatorade, water, and snacks.
  • After the race, starting on Tuesday if you would like to switch your shirt size or need to pick one up after registering during bib pick-up you can do so at Frosty Feet Running Company. Keep in mind I will only have them there for one week, then they head into storage.

Volunteers were very hard to come by this year, so please be sure to THANK THEM!! The race can not happen without them!

Let me know if you have any questions.

Course Reroutes for 2022

Stan Justice, the primary and longest-running Equinox Marathon course maintainer, reports that this year there will be some minor changes to the both courses to accommodate various conditions.

The seasonal pond just north of Ballaine Lake has not dried up this year, so we are going around it. This shortened the out and back 139 feet.

 

Both the half and the full will stay off Ester Dome Road a tad more. The landowner suggested we stay on the powerline to their driveway. I need to move the Susan Sugi sign.

 

The half is going to go right on Ester Dome Road and then right on the road to Goldstream Sports but not go into the parking lot. Stay on the road and then left up Ann’s airstrip.

 

The start for the half moves back 158 feet.

 

I hope that is all the changes and no surprise comes up.

Thanks for all your work, Stan!
