The Equinox Marathon Needs Volunteers!

The 56th annual Equinox Marathon will be held on Saturday, 9/15/2018. And that means volunteers are needed!

We’re using SignUp.com to organize our volunteers.

Here’s how it works in 3 easy steps:

  1. Click here to see our SignUp on SignUp.com.
  2. Review the options listed and choose the spot(s) you like.
  3. Sign up! It’s Easy – you will NOT need to register an account or keep a password on SignUp.com.

Note: SignUp.com does not share your email address with anyone. If you prefer not to use your email address, please contact Monte Jordan and she can sign you up manually.

Thanks for helping! You’re what makes the Equinox Marathon such a success each year!

Stay at the Official Host Hotel!

If you are looking for a place to stay near the start and finish of the Equinox Marathon, look no farther than the official host hotel, the Best Western Plus Chena River Lodge on Airport Way, just across from Fred Meyer West. They have 10 rooms blocked off for the dates of September 14 to 17, for just $75/night.

Call 907-328-3500 to make a reservation – and tell them you are here for the Equinox Marathon to get the special rate.

Registration is Now Open for the 2018 Equinox!

Registration is now open for the 2018 Equinox Marathon and Relay, for both the marathoner and hiker classes! Yes, in 2018 we’ll have a Hiker class to recognize the long tradition of hiking the marathon route since our very first days.

This year, Early Bird registration goes to midnight on July 31, Standard to September 12. Late registration is September 13 and 14 at bib pickup, and Race Day registration is, well, on race day, September 15. The longer you wait, the more expensive it is!

Get all the registration details on the Entering page and get signed up today. Then get out there and train!

Equinox Shirts Are In!

The Equinox Marathon shirts are finally in for those that did not receive one yet!

For all locals, you can pick them up at Goldstream Sports. Their store hours are Monday – Friday 12:00pm – 7:00pm AND Saturday 10:00am – 5:00pm.

Anyone who lives out of town and marked their names on a sign-up sheet, your shirts will be mailed out. Please be patient as I prepare them for mailing.

There are a few bags left. They will be on a first come, first serve basis.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Happy Running!!

Marathon and Relay Wrap-Up

Runners, Joggers, Hikers, and Walkers:

The shirts are on order and should arrive mid-October. Once they arrive, we will send out a mass email.

For those that did not receive their age-group, overall, or relay awards at the banquet, you can pick them up at Goldstream Sports during their regular store hours. If you live out of town, they have been shipped out to you.

Pictures are coming soon. Our photographer is putting them together. Again, I will send an email out once they are ready. In the meantime, here is a link to some photos that someone took the time to put together. Thank you Nurit Katz!
