Marathoners will receive their Half-Marathon split when traveling through the Athlete Village before heading out on the second loop of this beautiful scenic course that will take you through meadows and forests, past rivers, and beautifully landscaped golf greens and summer homes.

NOTE: The Marathon is a Boston Marathon qualifier.

MP3 PLAYERS / IPODS / PORTABLE MUSIC DEVICES: Music devices will be allowed for use on the run course portions of all of the Pacific Crest events, but only one earbud may be used (for participant safety). This applies only to Pacific Crest, but not to the other multisport events owned by AA Sports, Ltd.

HYDRATION STATIONS & PORTA POTTIES: Aid stations with water and Hammer Heed electrolyte drink will be located approximately every mile and at the finish line. Fluids will be kept in cooling containers with ice prior to dispensing. Porta Potties will be located approximately every mile.

MARKING: The run course will be marked with white lime & pink directional signs (8 1/2″ x 11″) mounted on 48″ wooden stakes. There will also be course marshals and/or Police at all necessary intersections where vehicle traffic may be found. Each mile will be marked with a mileage sign. The Run course will be marked by Thursday morning (including mile markers).

COMMUNICATIONS: Every hydration station on the run course will have radio communication with the finish line and the Run Course Managers. If you cannot finish the race for any reason, please notify race personnel at the closest hydration station, or report it to the finish line. If you do not finish, please make sure that you return your Timing Chip to the finish line.

The Marathon and Half-Marathon events start in the Athletes Village. The paths are approximately 6 ft wide, perfectly paved and wind  through the forest. Each course has only two small hills, with a minimal elevation gain to navigate and a fast downhill to flat finish.

Runners and Walkers will finish the race at the Sunriver Village Mall (Athlete Village) to the cheers of the enthusiastic crowd. Once finished, runners can enjoy the finish line festivities, including the Sports & Fitness Expo and live entertainment. Post-race refreshments will be provided and the Awards Ceremony for the Marathon/Half-Marathon will begin once the results have been certified.
