About This Activity

Pine Tree Marathon & Half Marathon starts at 6:00 am

Seven laps of 3.62 miles, plus .86 miles at start for Full Marathon
Three laps of 3.62 miles, plus .43 miles at start for Half Marathon

The Pine Tree Marathon is the first in a 5 day series of the New England Challenge which is 5 Marathons in 5 Days in 5 States.

The 4th Annual Pine Tree Marathon and Half Marathon will be held at  Back Cove Park in Portland, Maine. This is a very beautiful park around a large round inlet. Although this race is in the Spring time, be prepared for some light rain and wind. The race is run on a very flat hard packed dirt path that encircles Back Cove inlet. There is only one point that you have to go up a slight incline which goes along the interstate but it has a concrete wall between this path and the interstate. This path is only 3.62 miles around so we are going to run around it 7 times for the Full Marathon and 3 times for the Half Marathon. Before we start the laps we will run a lap of (.86 miles for Full Marathon and .43 for Half Marathon) out and back to make the marathon distance. We will set up at 5am for Race Day registration. There will be one Aid Station and one Portapotti at the Start/Finish line. 

This is a great marathon series for those that are tired of the super marathons with thousands of people. Our races only hold 300 people each and are held in beautiful garden parks. This is a very nice easy paced race that is also close to your parked vehicle for easy access to your belongings. Our staff will cheer you on by name! Every runner is treated like an Elite athlete! Run with Savage Racing, Inc. in our New England Challenge Series for you Boston Qualifying also. No stress, No pressure, No crowds! Just a great Spring time race.
