Start Time

All Equinox events (marathon and relay) begin at 8:00AM, with a single mass start.

Finish Line Cutoff Time

The finish line for the Equinox events closes down at 6:00PM, 10 hours after the race start. Every person or relay team that finishes by 6:00PM will receive a finish time. Those who finish after 6:00PM will not be timed or receive any of the finish recognition items that those who finish before 6:00PM receive.

We understand that it is a major achievement for some people to finish in any amount of time. However, the Equinox events have a policy of enforcing a firm cutoff time. If you don’t think that you can finish the marathon by 6:00PM, then you should consider entering the relay.
