Mandatory for First-Time Racers
- Attendance is mandatory for ALL first-time racers, even if they have completed the entire race course prior to race day.
- Juniors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian for the entire event, including the video and bib pickup.

Recommended for All Racers
The terrain on Mount Marathon changes every year and there are inherent risks associated with mountain running and racing. Every racer should practice the entire race course and be adequately conditioned before participating. Unprepared and underprepared participants may endanger other racers, spectators and medical personnel, and jeopardize the sustainability of the race.
If you do not feel adequately prepared, DO NOT participate in the race.
