Ashworth Awards Baystate Marathon, Half Marathon and Half Marathon Relay is excited to, once again offer a course preview run on Sunday, September 23, 2018. This will give registered runners an opportunity to become familiar with the full or half marathon courses prior to race day.
Members of the Greater Lowell Road Runners familiar with the courses will be available to guide runners at various paces for both full and half marathon. At signup, you will be asked for your approximate training pace.
The half marathon course run will be about 6.6 miles (single loop) and the full marathon run will be approximately 16 miles (single loop over the Tyngsboro bridge). We understand many runners will want to run additional miles. We can recommend some options for those runners who want to continue after returning to the finish. Water stops will be setup at approximately mile 3 (half and full), mile 8 and 12.5 (full). Porta-potties will be available at the start/finish and mile 8.
Check-in will be located at the GLRR tent adjacent to the George A. Ayotte Parking Garage which is next to the Tsongas Arena.
Check-in: 7:30 - 7:45 a.m.
Start: 8:00 a.m.
Note: Take advantage of the pacers knowledge of the course and the local area by asking plenty of questions along the way!
Registered runners will have the opportunity to sign up, stay tuned to email and Facebook for instructions.
