Rules of the event
This is not a sanctioned race but we do have RRCA insurance.
The Birch Bay Marathon continues a long tradition of minimal aid and brutal weather. There will be a Half Marathon + 2 mile option. Both races will start on Saturday December 10th at 9:00 am and the course will close at 2:00. If you need more time please plan on starting early and missing aid until your second loop.
With that said... be prepared to wear all of your clothes and enjoy the seagulls flying backwards. If the weather is tollerable it will be a great day. It will be run on a previously TAC measured course and results will be tabulated and published on this web site. It is intended to be a fun run and count towards Marathon Maniacs and other tallies.
An 8:00 start is available for those who plan on taking 5 or more hours. It does cause us aid issues so plan on carrying your own until mobile aid finds you on the loop.
